Probable G-protein coupled receptor 128 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the GPR128 gene.[1][2] It is a member of the adhesion-GPCR family of receptors. Family members are characterized by an extended extracellular region with a variable number of protein domains coupled to a TM7 domain via a domain known as the GPCR-Autoproteolysis INducing (GAIN) domain.[3][4]
