    ..The high expression of PKR2 mRNA within the SCN and the positive feedback of PK2 on its own transcription through activation of PKR2 suggest that PK2 may also function locally within the SCN to synchronize output. ..

    ..Our findings support that PK2 is a proalgesic factor and its signaling likely contributes to acidosis-evoked pain by sensitizing acid-sensing ion channels. ..

    ..The mRNAs of both EG-VEGF/PK-R1 and -R2 were expressed in BACE. The identification of the receptors for EG-VEGF/prokineticins may provide a novel molecular basis for the regulation of angiogenesis in endocrine glands. ..
