Description

G Protein-Coupled Receptors, Part B, Volume 195 represents the largest class of cell H103 surface proteins that have intricate involvement in nearly every physiological process in our body. Approximately one third of the clinically prescribed medicines target GPCRs and the quest to improve the exiting GPCR-targeting therapeutics continues. Sections in this volume include Adhesion G protein-coupled receptors: Structure and functions, Molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying brain region-specific cannabinoid receptor modulation by estradiol across the rodent estrus cycle, Probing the orphan receptors: Tools and directions, Asymmetric activation of Class C GPCRs, Common and selective signal transduction mechanisms of GPCRs, and much more.

Key Features

  • Covers a broad range of topics related to GPCR activation and signaling
  • Provides several receptor systems, with an emphasis on emerging paradigms
  • Includes different processes and model systems, with a focus on GPCRs

Readership

Scientists interested in learning about the latest developments in the field of GPCR biology and drug discovery
