« Hide More detailed introduction

The G protein-coupled estrogen receptor (GPER, nomenclature as agreed by the NC-IUPHAR Subcommittee on the G protein-coupled estrogen receptor [9]) was identified following observations of estrogen-evoked cyclic AMP signalling in breast cancer cells [1], which mirrored the differential expression of an orphan 7-transmembrane receptor GPR30 [3]. There are observations of both cell-surface and intracellular expression of the GPER receptor [10-11].


Targets of relevance to immunopharmacology are highlighted in blue
