We report the molecular characterization of a novel G-protein-coupled receptor, GPR48, that resembles proteins in the glycoprotein hormone receptor family. The full-length human GPR48 cDNA is comprised of 951 amino acids. The large extracellular amino terminus of 538 residues is composed of seventeen leucine-rich repeats (LRR). The genomic structure of GPR48 has several features in common with genes in the glycoprotein hormone receptor family. Analogous to these receptors, most of the LRR are… CONTINUE READING
