G protein-coupled receptor 12 (IPR000599)

Short name: GPR12

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


G protein-coupled receptor 12 (GPR12) was initially isolated from a rat pituitary library, and is found in discrete regions of the brain, pituitary and testis, but is absent in other tissues [PMID: 1840531, PMID: 8530049]. Three human homologues (GPR12, GPR6 and GPR3) have also been isolated [PMID: 8530049]. The 3 genes have been localised to human chromosomal regions 13q12, 6q21 and 1p34.3-p36.1 respectively.

This entry represents G protein-coupled receptor 12. It is an orphaned receptor, with no endogenous ligand having yet been identified.
