Access to the article is free, however registration and sign-in are required. Structural and functional studies shed light on how G protein-coupled receptors sense external stimuli. G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs)--the largest and most diverse group of tranmembrane receptors--occur in nearly every eukaryotic cell and can sense photons, cations, small molecules, peptides, and proteins (1, 2). Two research articles in this issue (4, 5) and a recent article in Nature (6) report important steps towards understanding how GPCRs operate.
