  1. 1. Evolution and Pharmacology of Neuropeptide Y Receptors, Implications for vertebrate genome duplications

    Author : Robert Fredriksson; Susanne Holmgren; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurosciences; Evolution; tetraploidizations; G-protein coupled receptor; neuropeptide Y; zebrafish; chicken; rainbow trout; lamprey; genome duplications; peptide YY; pancreatic polypeptide; Neurovetenskap; Neurology; Neurologi; medicinsk farmakologi; Medical Pharmacology;

    Abstract : The Y receptors comprise a family of evolutionarily related receptors belonging to the superfamily of G-protein coupled receptors (GPCR). Their natural ligands are in mammals neuropeptide Y (NPY), peptide YY (PYY) and pancreatic polypeptide (PP). READ MORE

  2. 2. The Gene Repertoire of G protein-coupled Receptors : New Genes, Phylogeny, and Evolution

    Author : Þóra Kristín Bjarnadóttir; Helgi B. Schiöth; Robert Fredriksson; Kurt Kristiansen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmacology; Bioinformatics; Evolution; GPCR; Phylogeny; Farmakologi; Pharmacological research; Farmakologisk forskning;

    Abstract : The superfamily of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) is one of the largest protein families of mammalian genomes and can be divided into five main families; Glutamate, Rhodopsin, Adhesion, Frizzled, and Secretin. GPCRs participate in most major physiological functions, contributing to the fact that they are important targets in drug discovery. READ MORE

  3. 3. Characterization of Novel Solute Carriers in Humans, Mice and Flies : Solute Carriers in a Broad and Narrow Perspective

    Author : Mikaela Ceder; Robert Fredriksson; Anita Öst; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Solute carrier; SLC; Putative SLCs; Major facilitator superfamily; MFS; Drosophila melanogaster; Glucose metabolism; UNC93A; CG4928; Farmaceutisk vetenskap; Pharmaceutical Science;

    Abstract : The solute carrier family is the largest family of membrane-bound transporters in humans, with 430 members divided into 65 subfamilies. They transport various substrates across lipid barriers and are vital for absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion in all cell types in the body. READ MORE

    Abstract : The gastrointestinal tract (GIT) regulates nutrient uptake, secretes hormones and has a crucial gut flora and enteric nervous system. Of relevance for these functions are the G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) and the solute carriers (SLCs). READ MORE

  5. 5. Determining Ligand- and Lipid- Interactions of SLC Transporters

    Author : Yurie Chatzikyriakidou; David Drew; Robert Fredriksson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Solute carrier transporter; nucleotide-sugar transporter; SLC35; sodium proton exchanger; SLC9B2; thermal stability assay; membrane transport; Synaptic vesicle protein 2; Biochemistry; biokemi;

    Abstract : Solute carrier transporters (SLCs) mediate the inter- and intra- cellular trafficking of a plethora of substrates and are essential to cell homeostasis. Despite their importance to human physiology and their potential as therapeutic targets, many SLCs are considered orphans as the physiological substrate has not been experimentally determined.
