Summaries for GPR33 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for GPR33 Gene

  • This gene has been identified as an orphan chemoattractant G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCR) pseudogene. Studies have shown that the inactivated gene is present as the predominant allele in the human population. A small fraction of the human population has been found to harbor an intact allele.[provided by RefSeq, Oct 2010]

Variants for GPR33 Gene

Polymorphic Variants from UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GPR33 Gene

In most individuals a nonsense mutation transforms the Arg-140 into a premature stop codon. Out of 1217 individuals, 1166 had a stop codon in both alleles, 50 were heterozygous and only one (in the Philippines) had Arg-140 in both alleles. GPR33 has undergone independent pseudogenization in human, chimpanzee, orangutan, siamang and rat. This selective inactivation may be due to its interaction with a putative pathogen that could use GPR33 as a receptor for cell invasion.
