G protein-coupled receptor 156
GPR156 Gene
RNA expression pattern

GPR156 (G protein-coupled receptor 156), is a human gene which encodes a G protein-coupled receptor belonging to metabotropic glutamate receptor subfamily.[1] By sequence homology, this gene was proposed as being a possible GABAB receptor subunit, however when expressed in cells alone or with other GABAB subunits, no response to GABAB ligands could be detected. Therefore the function of this protein remains to be elucidated.[2]
