G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) exhibit a wide range of pharmacological efficacies, yet the molecular mechanisms responsible for the differential efficacies in response to various ligands remain poorly understood. This lack of understanding has hindered the development of a solid foundation for establishing a mathematical model for signaling efficacy. However, recent progress has been made in delineating and quantifying receptor conformational states and associating function with these conformations. This progress has allowed us to construct a mathematical model for GPCR signaling efficacy that goes beyond the traditional ON/OFF binary switch model. In this study, we present a quantitative conformation-based mathematical model for GPCR signaling efficacy using the adenosine A2A receptor (A2AR) as a model system, under the guide of 19F quantitative nuclear magnetic resonance experiments. This model encompasses two signaling states, a fully activated state and a partially activated state, defined as being able to regulate the cognate Gas nucleotide exchange with respective G protein recognition capacity. By quantifying the population distribution of each state, we can now in turn examine GPCR signaling efficacy. This advance provides a foundation for assessing GPCR signaling efficacy using a conformation-based mathematical model in response to ligand binding.
