Provides a comprehensive overview of recent discoveries and current understandings of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). Recent advances include the first mammalian non-rhodopsin GPCR structures and reconstitution of purified GPCRs into membrane discs for defined studies, novel signaling features including oligomerization, and advances in understanding the complex ligand pharmacology and physiology of GPCRs, in new assay technologies and drug targeting. The authors take time to detail the importance of the pathophysiological function and drug targeting of GPCRs, specifically ss-adrenoceptors in cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, metabotropic glutamate receptors in CNS disorders, S1P receptors in the immune system, and Wnt/Frizzled receptors in osteoporosis. This book will be invaluable to researchers and graduate students in academia and industry who are interested in the GPCR field.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The editors of G Protein-Coupled Receptors: Structure, Signaling, and Physiology successfully synthesize decades of research into a well-organized reference textbook. The layout of this text is one of its best features... the strengths of this text would be most appreciated by the structural pharmacologist hoping to gain a comprehensive overview of GPCR biology. The well-outlined chapters balance the abundance and often overwhelming supply of references, while the simple figures and summary tables provide valuable information for the GPCR novice." Alexandra Teixeira, Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine
