Protein Information
Name Kiss1
Function Metastasis suppressor protein. May regulate events downstream of cell-matrix adhesion, perhaps involving cytoskeletal reorganization. Generates a C-terminally amidated peptide, metastin which functions as the endogenous ligand of the G-protein coupled receptor GPR54. Activation of the receptor inhibits cell proliferation and cell migration, key characteristics of tumor metastasis. The receptor is also essential for normal gonadotropin-released hormone physiology and for puberty. The hypothalamic KiSS1/GPR54 system is a pivotal factor in central regulation of the gonadotropic axis at puberty and in adulthood. Intracerebroventricular administration induces an increase in serum LH and FSH levels in prepubertal male and female as well as in adult animals.
Cellular Location Secreted.
Tissue Location Weak in all tissue types with highest levels in lung and 15- 17-day embryos. Expressed in areas of the hypothalamus implicated in the neuroendocrine regulation of gonadotropin secretion, including the anteroventral periventricular nucleus, the periventricular nucleus, and the arcuate nucleus.

KiSS-1 has been reported to suppress metastases of melanomas and breast carcinomas without affecting tumorigenicity. Human KiSS-1 transcripts are predominately expressed in the brain and placenta. Expression of KiSS-1 reduces the level of NFkB p50/p65 binding to the MMP9 promoter and correlates with diminished expression of the 92 kDa type IV collagenase (MMP-9). KiSS-1 may regulate events downstream of cell-matrix adhesion in mechanisms involving cytoskeletal reorganization.
