Probable G-protein coupled receptor 101 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the GPR101 gene.[1][2]

G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs, or GPRs) contain 7 transmembrane domains and transduce extracellular signals through heterotrimeric G proteins.[2]

Clinical significance[edit]

A duplication event in GPR101 is implicated in cases of gigantism and acromegaly.[3]
