that the CpepR is a GPCR, perhaps one of the 136 orphan GPCRs cataloged by IUPHAR ( Sharman et al . 2013 ). We have developed a Deductive Ligand-Receptor Matching Strategy that we recently used to identify the cognate receptor of the peptide hormone

orphan receptor GPCR107 ( Yosten et al. 2012 , Elrick et al. 2016 ). Importantly, we found that GPCR107 is highly expressed in the baboon pituitary (mRNA levels greater than those for all sst-subtypes) and pituitary GPCR107 expression (but not sst1

. There are compelling evidence to support elevated expression of certain G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) as a cause of some cases of adrenocorticotrophin (ACTH)-independent Cushing’s syndrome ( Bugalho et al. 2000 , Dall’Asta et al. 2004

identification of novel ligand and receptor genes similar to those of human glycoprotein hormones and their receptors. As shown in Fig. 1 , five orphan G-protein-coupled receptors have been identified in the human genome based on their sequence homology to human
