Background: Human G-protein coupled receptor 97 (ADGRG3), a member of the adhesion GPCR family, is a recently deorphanzied receptor for beclomethasone dipropionate. GPR97 is expressed in immune cells, specifically thymocytes and pre-B cells. Current research studies on knockout mice demonstrate the importance of GPR97 in B-cell development and its potential as a therapeutic target for the treatment of immunological disorders.
Application: Functional assays
