Introduction of TACR3
TACR3 (Tachykinin Receptor 3), a G protein-coupled receptor, is encoded by TACR3 gene. TACR3 is a receptor for the tachykinin neuropeptide neuromedin-K (neurokinin B), and it can interact with G proteins that activate a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system. Meanwhile, several studies conducted on TACR3 indicate that its mutation can lead to a defect in the control of GnRH, and it plays a role in puberty onset and fertility in humans. TACR3 is regarded to relate with many diseases, such as bronchial hyperresponsiveness, airway inflammation, and cough. It could contribute to improving the treatment of reproductive disorders.

Function of TACR3 Membrane Protein
The TACR3 belongs to tachykinins receptor family. Various types of the 5'-end of the sequence of TACR3 gene provide the specific receptor affinities. In fact, TACR3 plays a significant role in physiological development and specifically in the human reproductive system, and many diseases also have been proved to be related to the TACR3, including inflammatory bowel diseases, irritable bowel syndrome, squamous cell carcinoma, and gastrointestinal cancers.

Application of TACR3 Membrane Protein in Literature
This article studies the frequency of GNRHR, FGFR1, TAC3, and TACR3 mutations in nine adolescent and young adult females with clinical cues consistent with partial gonadotropin deficiency, and results show that genetic testing of the GNRHR gene should be necessary to reduce the risk of disease.
This article reviews recent research on GPCR-miRNA interactions related to gastrointestinal pathophysiology, and try to identify the potential biomarkers for gastrointestinal diseases.
Authors analyze the data from three genome-wide association studies and find genetic variation in TACR3 may contribute to the risk of Vasomotor symptoms.
This article examines the expression pattern of TAC3/TACR3 in clinically-resected oral squamous cell carcinoma samples, and the data show TACR3 in the bone matrix can affect gingival oral squamous cell carcinoma cells.
Authors conduct a study in zebrafish to determine whether NKB acts directly on the ovary to regulate reproduction, and they find NK3R mRNA is strongly down-regulated in granulosa cells obtained from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) patients, which can be useful for the PCOS therapy.
