Oligomerization and Allosteric Modulation in G-Protein Coupled Receptors

Edited by

  • Terry Kenakin, PhD, Professor of Pharmacology, The University of North Carolina School Of Medicine, Chapel Hill, USA

In this thematic volume of Progress in Molecular Biology and Translational Science, researchers reflect on recent developments and research surrounding G protein-coupled receptors. The chapters cover a large breadth of research, including GPCR role in stem cell function and pharmacology.

Authors explore in-depth research techniques and applications of GPCR usage, covering theory, laboratory approaches, and unique qualities that make GPCRs a crucial tool in microbiological and cancer research.
