7TM_GPCR_SrsxSerpentine type 7TM GPCR chemoreceptor Srsx
|SMART accession number:||SM01381
||Chemoreception is mediated in Caenorhabditis elegans by members of the seven-transmembrane G-protein-coupled receptor class (7TM GPCRs) of proteins which are of the serpentine type (PMID:7585938). Srsx is a solo family amongst the superfamilies of chemoreceptors. Chemoperception is one of the central senses of soil nematodes like C. elegans which are otherwise blind and deaf (PMID:18050473)|
