Background: GPR65 also known as T cell death-associated gene 8 (TDAG8) is a proton-sensing GPCR and plays a major role in pH homeostasis. This receptor is primarily expressed in lymphoid tissues (spleen, thymus, leukocytes and lymph nodes) and cancer tissues. The major function of this receptor is to reduce immune-mediated inflammation by regulating cytokine production from T cells and macrophages.
Application: Functional assays
