Serpentine type 7TM GPCR chemoreceptor Srsx (IPR019424)

Short name: 7TM_GPCR_Srsx

Family relationships

None.

Description

Chemoreception is mediated in Caenorhabditis elegans by members of the seven-transmembrane G-protein-coupled receptor class (7TM GPCRs) of proteins which are of the serpentine type [PMID: 7585938]. Srsx is a solo family amongst the superfamilies of chemoreceptors. Chemoperception is one of the central senses of soil nematodes like C. elegans which are otherwise 'blind' and 'deaf' [PMID: 18050473].
