General Comments
ADGRF1 (formerly GPR110) is an orphan receptor that belongs to Family VI Adhesion-GPCRs together with ADGRF2-5 (formerly GPR111, GPR113, GPR115 and GPR116 respectively) [1]. The genes of Family VI Adhesion-GPCRs except ADGRF3 are syntenically clustered on human chromosome 6 and mouse chromosome 17 suggesting the evolution from an ancestral gene through gene duplication and exon shuffling [5].
