This report describes the identification and characterization of the murine orphan GPCR, Gpr101. Both human and murine genes were localized to chromosome X. Similar to its human ortholog, murine Gpr101 mRNA was detected predominantly in the brain within discrete nuclei. A knowledge-restricted hidden Markov model-based algorithm, capable of accurately(More)
We report here the isolation of a novel gene termed mGluR5R (mGluR5-related). The N-terminus of mGluR5R is highly similar to the extracellular domain of metabotropic glutamate receptor 5 (mGluR5) whereas the C-terminus bears similarity to the testis-specific gene, RNF18. mGluR5R is expressed in the human CNS in a coordinate fashion with mGluR5. Although the(More)
