    ..The absence of their expression in non-small cell lung cancer does not support a role of these transcription factors in initiating and maintaining this neoplastic process. ..

    ..Thus, mPRs arose from Eubacteria independently from members of the GPCR superfamily, which arose from Archeabacteria, suggesting convergent evolution of seven-transmembrane hormone receptors coupled to G proteins. ..

    ..These results suggest that st-mPRalpha is an intermediary in progestin stimulation of sperm motility in seatrout by an unknown mechanism involving G protein activation. ..
