NC-IUPHAR (International Union of Pharmacology Committee on Receptor Nomenclature and Drug Classification) and its subcommittees provide authoritative reports on the nomenclature and pharmacology of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) that summarize their structure, pharmacology, and roles in physiology and pathology. These reports are published in Pharmacological Reviews ( and through the International Union of Pharmacology (IUPHAR) Receptor Database…

International Union of Pharmacology. LXXII. Recommendations for Trace Amine Receptor Nomenclature

This review proposes an official nomenclature designating TAAR1 as the trace amine 1 receptor following the convention of naming receptors after the endogenous agonist, abbreviated to TA1 where necessary.

Evolving pharmacology of orphan GPCRs: IUPHAR Commentary

Recent efforts by the British Pharmacological Society and NC‐IUPHAR to define the endogenous ligands of ‘orphan’ GPCRs and to place authoritative and accessible information about these crucial therapeutic targets online are reported on.

Traditional GPCR Pharmacology and Beyond

Although typical drugs modulate GPCRs at the site of ligand binding, there are a number of alternative signaling positions to modulate important receptor actions including G protein coupling, phosphorylation, internalization, and recycling.

How to use the IUPHAR receptor database to navigate pharmacological data.

The database provides a channel for the IUPHAR Nomenclature Committee (NC-IUPHar) to provide recommendations on the nomenclatures of receptors and ion channels, to document their properties and the ligands that are useful for receptor characterization.

Screening technologies for G protein-coupled receptors: from HTS to uHTS.

Most of the assay technologies currently in use for "in vitro" pharmacological screening, their evolution, their capabilities, and their limitations are reviewed.



The G protein-coupled receptor repertoires of human and mouse

The repertoire of GPCRs for endogenous ligands consists of 367 receptors in humans and 392 in mice, including 26 human and 83 mouse GPCR not previously identified, revealing an unexpected level of orthology.

Phylogenetic analysis of 277 human G-protein-coupled receptors as a tool for the prediction of orphan receptor ligands

The authors' trees show the overall relationship of 277 GPCRs with emphasis on orphan receptors, and may prove valuable for identification of the natural ligands of orphan receptors as their relation to receptors with known ligands becomes more evident.

International Union of Pharmacology. XXXII. The Mammalian Calcitonin Gene-Related Peptides, Adrenomedullin, Amylin, and Calcitonin Receptors

A review of the calcitonin family of peptides aims to reconcile what is observed when the receptors are reconstituted in vitro with the properties they show in native cells and tissues.

The G-protein-coupled receptors in the human genome form five main families. Phylogenetic analysis, paralogon groups, and fingerprints.

This study represents the first overall map of the GPCR sequences in a single mammalian genome and shows several common structural features indicating that the human GPCRs in the GRAFS families share a common ancestor.

Molecular tinkering of G protein‐coupled receptors: an evolutionary success

Indirect studies have led to a useful model of a common ‘central core’, composed of seven transmembrane helical domains, and its structural modifications during activation of G protein‐coupled receptors.

This issue of Pharmacological Reviews includes a new venture in the collaboration between the International Union of Pharmacology (IUPHAR) and the American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental

The human olfactory receptor repertoire

The identification and cloning of all functional human odorant receptor genes is an important initial step in understanding receptor-ligand specificity and combinatorial encoding of odorant stimuli in human olfaction.

No Ligand Binding in the GB2 Subunit of the GABABReceptor Is Required for Activation and Allosteric Interaction between the Subunits

The GABAB receptor is further refined and the putative-binding site in the VFTM of GB2 is characterized, indicating that ligand binding in the GB2 V FTM is not required for activation and most residues of the binding pocket are conserved from Caenorhabditis elegans to human, no such conservation is observed in GB2.
