Log average relative transcript abundance in mouse tissues measured by qPCR from Regard, J.B., Sato, I.T., and Coughlin, S.R. (2008). Anatomical profiling of G protein-coupled receptor expression. Cell, 135(3): 561-71. [PMID:18984166] [Raw data: website]

Clinically-Relevant Mutations and Pathophysiology Comments
Human missense SNP P432L (rs148692008; dbSNP) has been identified as associated with melanoma by whole exome sequencing, but remains untested [4].

Methylation of the GPR101 gene promoter in stage IV colorectal cancer is correlated with longer time to progression. Tumour specific hypermethylation observed [2].
