    FAMILY
  • KISS1 family
  • CATEGORY tumor suppressor , receptor membrane
    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION extracellular
    basic FUNCTION
  • regulation of cancer metastasis in malignant melanomas
  • regulating events downstream of cell-matrix adhesion, perhaps involving cytoskeletal reorganization
  • directly stimulating gonadotrophin-releasing hormone release via KISS1R, and as a relevant downstream element in the neuroendocrine network governing LH secretion
  • activates a receptor coupled to Galphaq subunits, KISS1R (activation of KISS1R signaling may negatively regulate the role of CXCR4 in programming tumor metastasis)
  • strong suppressant of metastasis
  • having a potential autocrine metastasis suppression effect on KISS1R-positive tumor cells
  • being pivotal regulator of the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis and reproduction, with the ability to integrate signals from both internal and external sources
  • CELLULAR PROCESS
    PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESS
    PATHWAY
    metabolism
    signaling
    a component kisspeptin/KISS1R system appears to play an important role in the regulation of reproduction
    INTERACTION
    DNA
    RNA
    small molecule
    protein
  • metastin, ligand for KISS1R (AXOR12)(KISS1/KISS1R signalling may suppress the invasive phenotype of epithelial ovarian cancer)
  • MED23 is a key regulator in KISS1 transactivation in normal tissue, and the loss of MED23 expression, provokes increased tumor metastasis
  • cleaved by matrix metalloproteinases
  • associated with its receptor GPR54
  • cell & other
