GPR83, a 423 A.A protein, is an orphan member of GPCR protein family and is closely related to tachykinin and NPY receptors. It is a human homolog of mouse GIR protein and is exclusively expressed and selectively up-regulated in brain. It is a cell surface receptor protein consisting of a putative seven-transmembrane-domain. Reports suggest GPR83 might be involved in the regulation of immune tolerance mechanism by inducing peripheral generation of Foxp3+ Treg cells.
