I've read that more than 50% drugs target the g-protein coupled receptors: What is so special with them that they are the targets for such a wide range of diseases?

  • Where did you read this? This site requires questions to demonstrate some degree of prior research so linking to the source of this claim would be good. – Carey Gregory Jun 4 '19 at 0:05
  • Thank you. I edited your question to add the link. When you're asked for more information, please edit your question and add it rather than just answering in a comment. – Carey Gregory Jun 4 '19 at 4:32
  • Thank you so much. I'll keep that in mind. – Mitali Kapoor Jun 4 '19 at 5:42
  • The fact you are referring to is not a because of some particular reason desired result - it's just a statistical observation, therefore it is not easy to simply tell "why". G-protein receptors are very common and present a huge variety of specific morphological details, which generally makes them a good instrument to manipulate with drugs. I am not sure if i could add this as an answer though since it lacks a particular information source. – practiZ Jun 4 '19 at 17:41
