These 23 orphans - CCRL2, GPR17, GPR19, GPR20, GPR21, GPR25, GPR31, GPR32, GPR50, GPR52, GPR80, GPR83, GPR135, GPR141, GPR150, GPR151, GPR153, GPR183 LGR4, LGR6, MAS1, OGR1 and OPN5 - are linked to a series of important indications, including melanoma, ovarian and prostate cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma, multiple sclerosis, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, memory and emotion control, cognition, suspended animation, arterial stiffness, acute inflammatory responses, humoral immunity, bone disorders and wound repair.
GPR150 is linked to ovarian cancer, while GPR151 is involved with cognition.
In addition, Omeros has unlocked GPR20, GPR135, GPR150 and OPN5, which have not yet been tied to any indications but are expressed preferentially in the gastrointestinal tract (GPR20), brain (GPR135) and eye, brain, testes and spinal cord (OPN5).
