G protein-coupled receptor 44 (GPR44) is a GPCR that has recently been found to belong to the prostanoid receptor family and named DP2 (CRTH2) (Marchese A et al, 1999). The effects of PGD2 bound to the receptor are mediated by coupling with the G protein alpha i/o subunit which inhibits cAMP production (Sawyer N et al, 2002).
