Leucine-rich repeat-containing G protein-coupled receptor 4
LGR4, GPR48, G protein-coupled receptor 48
G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) play key roles in a variety of physiologic functions. Members of the leucine-rich GPCR (LGR) family, such as GPR48, have multiple N-terminal leucine-rich repeats (LRRs) and a 7-transmembrane domain (Weng et al., 2008 [PubMed 18424556]).[supplied by OMIM, Aug 2008] (from

Herein, we show that depletion of the LGR4 receptor severely disrupts myogenic differentiation and significantly diminishes the response to RSPO2 in C2C12 cells, showing a requirement of LGR4 in RSPO signaling during myogenic differentiation.

Through whole-genome sequencing of Icelandic individuals, we found a rare nonsense mutation within the leucine-rich-repeat-containing G-protein-coupled receptor 4 (LGR4) gene (c.376C>T) that is strongly associated with low BMD, and with osteoporotic fractures.

In the present study, according to PCR-based microarrays using cDNA prepared from interleukin-6 (IL-6) treated osteosarcoma cells, we found that leucine-rich repeat-containing G protein-coupled receptor 4 (LGR4) was a transcriptional target of Stat3.
