Project description

Mapping one of the most important cellular receptor families

Mammalian cells separate their intracellular environments from the extracellular space via their cell membranes, critical for maintaining cellular homeostasis. However, cells and tissues also need a way to get extracellular signals carried by hormones, neurotransmitters and environmental stimulants into the cells. G-protein-coupled receptors are transmembrane proteins that take care of most of that, making them excellent targets for innumerable therapies. Knowing which ones are expressed where, when, and why is a prerequisite to targeted treatments. The EU-funded GPCR Transcriptomics project plans to deliver the first such map, and make it publicly available to the research community to ensure maximum impact on human health.
