« Hide More detailed introduction

The G-protein-coupled estrogen receptor (GPER, provisional nomenclature) was identified following observations of estrogen-evoked cAMP signalling in breast cancer cells [1], which mirrored the differential expression of an orphan 7-transmembrane receptor GPR30 [3]. There are observations of both cell-surface and intracellular expression of the GPER receptor [8-9].
