A measure of the functional importance of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) as signalling molecules is that over seven hundred have been cloned and identified in the human genome alone. Yet few have been characterized in the lower metazoan phyla, especially in the phylum Cnidaria which is well positioned phylogenetically for tracing the early evolution of GPCRs owing to their possession of the first-evolved nervous systems. We report here the cloning and characterization of four novel...[Show more]
