Receptors that sense endogenous peptides are important in normal brain function and in human disease. The project aims to investigate the properties of a new family of peptide receptors at the cellular level. The investigation of these receptors is significant as current research has suggested that they may have a role in the signalling pathways involved in pain and neurodegeneration.
