PRLR receptor for the anterior pituitary hormone prolactin and placental lactogen I and II. Interacts with Cyclophilin A, differentially regulating various signaling pathways from the PrlR. Prolactin signaling is attenuated by threonine and tyrosine phosphorylation. Two alternative splice isoforms have been identified. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
