Seven-transmembrane receptors, which constitute the largest, most ubiquitous and most versatile family of membrane receptors, are also the most common target of therapeutic drugs. Recent findings indicate that the classical models of G-protein coupling and activation of second-messenger-generating enzymes do not fully explain their remarkably diverse biological actions. 
13 Role of-Arrestins in Endosomal Sorting of G Protein-Coupled Receptors
G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are members of a large gene family encoded by approximately 1000 members (Lefkowitz, 2007; Pierce et al., 2002). They are also known as seven transmembrane domainExpand
G-protein-coupled receptors and cancer
TLDR
This Review will address the current understanding of the many roles of GPCRs and their signalling circuitry in tumour progression and metastasis and discuss how interfering with GPCR might provide unique opportunities for cancer prevention and treatment. Expand
Mechanisms of selective G protein-coupled receptor localization and trafficking.
TLDR
Recent studies addressing the mechanisms that contribute to selectivity in endocytic and biosynthetic trafficking of GPCRs are discussed. Expand
The Convergence of Extracellular Vesicle and GPCR Biology.
TLDR
Key points of convergence are highlighted, their relevance to current GPCR and EV paradigms are discussed, and how this intersection could lend itself to future therapeutic avenues are speculated on. Expand
Signals and Receptors.
TLDR
Ligand-activated receptors convey signals into the cell by activating signaling pathways that ultimately affect cytosolic machineries or nuclear transcriptional programs or by directly translocating to the nucleus to regulate transcription. Expand
The cyclic AMP pathway.
cAMP was the first second messenger to be identified. Its three main effectors are PKA (which phosphorylates numerous metabolic enzymes), EPAC (a guanine-nucleotide-exchange factor), andExpand
Essential role for the second extracellular loop in C5a receptor activation
TLDR
An unexpected role for EC2 is demonstrated as a negative regulator of C5a receptor activation and it is proposed that in other GPCRs, EC2 might serve a similar role by stabilizing the inactive state of the receptor. Expand
Persistent cAMP-Signals Triggered by Internalized G-Protein–Coupled Receptors
Real-time monitoring of G-protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) signaling in native cells suggests that the receptor for thyroid stimulating hormone remains active after internalization, challenging theExpand

Functional Significance of Oligomerization of G-protein-coupled Receptors
TLDR
A growing body of evidence indicates that GPCRs could exist and be active as oligomeric complexes, and their existence as homo- or heterodimers could have important implications for the development and screening of new drugs. Expand
Orphan G-protein-coupled receptors and natural ligand discovery.
TLDR
It has become clear that GPCR for which a natural activating ligand has not yet been identified (orphan GPCRs) might provide a path to discovering new cellular substances that are important in human physiology. Expand

TLDR
The techniques used to study GPCR heterodimers, and the 'novel pharmacology' and functional implications resulting from heterodimerization will be discussed. Expand
RAMPs regulate the transport and ligand specificity of the calcitonin-receptor-like receptor
TLDR
It is shown that a receptor with seven transmembrane domains, the calcitonin-receptor-like receptor (CRLR), can function as either a CGRP receptor or an adrenomedullin receptor, depending on which members of a new family of single-trans Membrane-domain proteins, which are called receptor-activity-modifying proteins or RAMPs, are expressed.
