Introduction of Anti-GPCR Antibody Discovery
G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) comprise the largest family of membrane receptors in humans. They transmit cell signals arising from a large number of ligands and play a critical role in regulating various cellular and metabolic functions. GPCRs have therapeutic applicability in a wide range of diseases, and thus represent the most valued drug discovery targets. However, current anti-GPCR drugs only target a small proportion of GPCRs. The structure, function and physiological role of novel GPCRs need to be further explored.
Anti-GPCR antibodies are practical tools to characterize GPCRs, especially orphan receptors. Monoclonal antibodies also show great potential as therapeutic drugs due to their superior specificity in regulating GPCRs to obtain the desired intracellular signaling. However, there are some challenges in anti-GPCR antibody discovery, such as high conformational variability, difficulty in antigen preparation, and limited exposure of GPCR extracellular epitopes. To overcome these challenges, several novel strategies, such as antigen design, immunization strategy, and high-throughput directed evolution, are suggested to generate highly specific anti-GPCR antibodies.
