G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) represent some of the most important drug targets in the human genome, however, our understanding of these receptors has primarily been confined to systems that require the overexpression of target receptors. In a recent study published in Cell, Janicot et al. introduced a universal biosensor platform capable of detecting GPCR signaling at endogenous levels, which facilitates its application across various cell lines, including primary cells, thereby improving our understanding of context-dependent GPCR activity and system bias.
