The heterotrimeric guanine nucleotide-binding proteins (G-proteins) function to transduce signals from this vast panoply of receptors to effector systems including ion channels and enzymes that alter the rate of production, release or degradation of intracellular second messengers. GPCRs activate the G-proteins, which consist of an alpha-subunit that binds and hydrolyses guanosine triphosphate (GTP), a beta and a gamma subunit.
