Functional consequences of naturally occurring DRY motif variants in the mammalian chemoattractant receptor GPR33.

Abstract

Most members of the large family of rhodopsin-like G-protein-coupled receptors possess an evolutionarily conserved Asp-Arg-Tyr (DRY) motif in the C-terminal region of the third transmembrane domain. Mutations of residues within this motif usually abolish receptor function and, when they occur naturally, can even cause human diseases. By analyzing over 100… (More)
