AB - The fine-tuning of endocrine homeostasis is regulated by dynamic receptor mediated processes. Thesuperfamily of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) have diverse roles in the modulation of all endocrineaxes, thus understanding the mechanisms underpinning their functionality is paramount for treatmentof endocrinopathies. Evidence over the last 20 years has highlighted homo and heteromerization as a keymode of mediating GPCR functional diversity. This review will discuss the concept of GPCR heteromerizationand its relevance to endocrine function, detailing in vitro and in vivo evidence, and exploringcurrent and potential pharmacological strategies for specific targeting of GPCR heteromers in endocrineheath and disease.
