BACKGROUND GPRC6A is a widely expressed orphan G-protein coupled receptor that senses extracellular amino acids, osteocalcin and divalent cations in vitro. The physiological functions of GPRC6A are unknown. METHODS/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS In this study, we created and characterized the phenotype of GPRC6A(-/-) mice. We observed complex metabolic abnormalities(More)
GPRC6A is a widely expressed orphan G protein-coupled receptor that senses extracellular amino acids, osteocalcin, and divalent cations in vitro. GPRC6A null (GPRC6A(-/-)) mice exhibit multiple metabolic abnormalities including osteopenia. To investigate whether the osseous abnormalities are a direct function of GPRC6A in osteoblasts, we examined the(More)
