G protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) have been considered as a highly “druggable” target for many years, with over 40% of marketed drugs acting to modulate their function. For many years, radiometric techniques have dominated GPCR screening. However in the last decade the development of functional assays, where the effect of molecules is evaluated in terms of GPCR activation, has accelerated.In particular, measurement of calcium signaling and the development of molecular strategies which couple the majority of GPCRs to calcium signaling has allowed the use of high-throughput functional screening in GPCR research.
