Trace amine-associated receptor 8 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the TAAR8 gene.[3][4][5] In humans, TAAR8 is the only trace amine-associated receptor that is known to be Gi/o-coupled.[6]

G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs, or GPRs) contain 7 transmembrane domains and transduce extracellular signals through heterotrimeric G proteins.[supplied by OMIM][5]
