Gene Family: Adiponectin receptors (ADIPOR)

ADIPOR1: Similar to G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), ADIPOR1 also possesses 7 transmembrane domains. However ADIPOR1 is orientated oppositely to GPCRs in the membrane (i.e., cytoplasmic N-terminus, extracellular C-terminus) and does not associate with G proteins. [Source: Wikipedia]
