Probable G-protein coupled receptor 162 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the GPR162 gene.[1][2]

This gene was identified upon genomic analysis of a gene-dense region at human chromosome 12p13. It appears to be mainly expressed in the brain; however, its function is not known. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified.[2]
