In a joint community effort, the Adhesion GPCR Consortium together with the FOR 2149 have revised the irregular nomenclature for Adhesion class GPCRs. New names were assigned to all mammalian aGPCR homologs, which are now marked through the unified gene name prefix ADGR (Adhesion G protein coupled Receptor). The new nomenclature takes effect immediately and will be adopted by the Human Genome Organisation (HUGO). The nomenclature was published as part of a comprehensive review on the receptor class in Pharmacological Reviews.
