As with the other members of this receptor class, such as the GABAB receptors and the metabotropic glutamate receptors, it consists of an extracellular domain containing the receptor, seven transmembrane domains and an intracellular portion. Binding of the ligand to the receptor causes a conformational change affecting the intracellular domain which then interacts with the G-protein. This gives rise to an exchange of guanosine triphosphate (GTP) for guanosine diphosphate (GDP) on the G-protein which activates it, thus stimulating the various second messenger cascades, (a) Fig.
