G protein coupled receptors gpcrs also known as seven pass transmembrane domain receptors 7tm receptors heptahelical receptors serpentine receptor and g protein linked receptors gplr constitute a large protein family of receptors that detect molecules outside the cell and activate internal signal transduction pathways and ultimately cellular responses. During the past few years crystallography of g protein coupled receptors gpcrs has experienced exponential growth resulting in structure determination of 14 distinct receptors 7 of them in 2012 alone including closely related subtype homology models this currently amounts to about 10 coverage of the gpcr superfamily. The past two years have seen remarkable advances in the structural biology of g protein coupled receptors gpcrs highlights have included solving the first crystal structures of ligand activated gpcrs the human 2 adrenergic receptor 2 ar the avian 1 ar and the human a 2a adenosine receptor as well as the structures of opsin and an active form of rhodopsin. Ligand binding to g protein coupled receptors triggers an intracellular protein to exchange one bound gdp nucleotide for a gtp the conformational change induced by gtp binding in turn affects interaction of the g protein with downstream signal transduction proteins.
