G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), also called as seven-transmembrane receptors, are the largest family of membrane receptors in the human genome and consist of approximately 800 receptors. Importantly, about half of which are GPCRs that interact with endogenous ligands and are the targets for many therapeutic drugs currently in use. In addition, because a substantial number of GPCRs still remain orphan, their biological roles and therapeutic potential are of special interests.
This WCP2018 satellite symposium is aimed to exchange the newest insights as well as up-to-date overview of GPCR research and discuss the therapeutic potentials.
This satellite symposium is organized as an international meeting of the 15th GPCR Conference, which has been held annually in Japan since 2004.
We sincerely look forward to seeing you in Kyoto.
