The metabolic role of the adhesion G protein-coupled receptor (aGPCR) GPR133 in mouse and human (PD Dr. Dr. Ines Liebscher), abgeschlossen

The cells of the human body have different receptors that regulate the metabolism and the function of the cells. The so-called adhesion G protein-coupled receptors (aGPCR) are associated with severe diseases and metabolic disorders. This study examines one representative of the aGPCR-group (GPR 133) in the animal model and on molecular level. The aim is to clarify the importance of this receptor and its effects on cells, bodyweight and metabolism.
