G Protein Coupled Receptors book cover

G Protein Coupled Receptors


This new volume of Methods in Enzymology continues the legacy of this premier serial by containing quality chapters authored by leaders in the field. This volume covers G protein coupled receptors and includes chapters on such topics as post-translation modification of GPCR in relationship to biased agonism, structure-based virtual screening, and GPCR oligomerization in the brain.

Biochemists, biophysicists, molecular biologists, analytical chemists, and physiologists
