Abstract

G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) control multiple physiological states by transducing a multitude of extracellular stimuli into the cell via coupling to intra-cellular heterotrimeric G-proteins. Deciphering which G-proteins couple to each of the hundreds of GPCRs present in a typical eukaryotic organism is therefore critical to understand signalling. Here, we present PRECOG (precog.russelllab.org): a web-server for predicting GPCR coupling, which allows users to: (i) predict coupling probabilities for GPCRs to individual G-proteins instead of subfamilies; (ii) visually inspect the protein sequence and structural features that are responsible for a particular coupling; (iii) suggest mutations to rationally design artificial GPCRs with new coupling properties based on predetermined coupling features.
