Over 1,000 sequences likely to encode G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are currently available in publicly accessible and proprietary databases and this number may grow with the refinement of a number of different genomes. However, despite recent efforts in the crystallization of these proteins, homology modeling approaches are becoming widely used as a method for obtaining quantitative and qualitative information for structure-based drug design as well as the interpretation of experimental data.
