I am pleased to announce that the proposal to create 


passed by a wide margin of 256 YES votes to 2 NO votes.

An announcement will be made in this forum when the newsgroup has been
set up and is ready for use.  Please do not request e-mail
subscriptions prior to this announcement.  People currently on the
7tms_r prototype newsgroup will be remain on the mailing list unless
they cancel their e-mail subscription in favor of using USENET news
when the USENET newsgroup appears at their site.  Instructions on how
to do this will be given with the forthcoming announcement when the
group is ready.

The purpose of G-PROTEIN-COUPLED-RECEPTOR/bionet.molbio.proteins.7tms_r
is to function as a forum for discussion for researchers involved in
the cloning, characterization and analysis of members of the
super-family of heptahelical signal transducing receptors which
interact with heterotrimeric G-proteins. Associated topics of
molecular pharmacology, protein structure/function, characterization
of orphan receptors, and other questions or discussions revolving
around these proteins are also germane.  The mailing list will
facilitate exchange of information, protocols, ideas and function as a
forum for discussion.
