  1. 1. Molecular simulations of G protein-coupled receptors : A journey into structure-based ligand design and receptor function

    Author : Pierre Matricon; Jens Carlsson; Bjørn Olav Brandsdal; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; G Protein-Coupled Receptor; Molecular Dynamics Simulations; Free Energy Perturbation; Ligand Binding; Fragment-Based Lead Discovery; Molecular Docking Screens; Homology Modeling; GPCR Activation Mechanism; Biology with specialization in Molecular Biotechnology; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär bioteknik;

    Abstract : The superfamily of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) contains a large number of important drug targets. These cell surface receptors recognize extracellular signaling molecules, which stimulates intracellular pathways that play major roles in human physiology. READ MORE

  2. 2. Theoretical Studies of G-Protein-Coupled Receptors

    Author : Xianqiang Sun; Yaoquan Tu; Lennart Nilsson; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biological Physics; Biologisk fysik;

    Abstract : The family of G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) contains the largest number of drug targets in the human body, with more than a quarter of the clinically used drugs targeting them. Because of the important roles GPCRs play in the human body, the mechanisms of activation of GPCRs or ligands binding to GPCRs have captivated much research interest since the discovery of GPCRs.

  3. 3. Classification, Evolution, Pharmacology and Structure of G protein-coupled Receptors

    Author : Malin C Lagerström; Helgi B. Schiöth; Robert Fredriksson; Anthony J. Harmar; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmacology; Classification; Structure; Pharmacology; Evolution; G protein-coupled receptor; Farmakologi; Pharmacological research; Farmakologisk forskning;

    Abstract : G protein-coupled receptors (GPCR) are integral membrane proteins with seven α-helices that translate a remarkable diversity of signals into cellular responses. The superfamily of GPCRs is among the largest and most diverse protein families in vertebrates. READ MORE

  4. 4. Structure-based Virtual Screening for Ligands of G Protein-coupled Receptors : Design of Allosteric and Dual-Target Modulators

    Author : Stefanie Kampen; Jens Carlsson; Peter Kolb; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; G protein-coupled receptors; Polypharmacology; Molecular Docking; Structure-based Drug Design; Parkinson’s Disease; Virtual Screening; Allosteric Modulators; Bioinformatics; Bioinformatik;

    Abstract : G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are integral membrane proteins responsible for signal transduction of extracellular stimuli into the cell. Because of their widespread distribution throughout the human body and important roles in physiological processes, GPCRs are prominent drug targets and approximately 34% of all approved drugs interact with members of this superfamily.

    Abstract : G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are membrane proteins that transduce the signals of extracellular ligands, such as hormones, neurotransmitters and metabolites, through an intracellular response via G proteins. They are abundant in human physiology and approximately 34% of the marketed drugs target a GPCR. READ MORE
