Seminar: Structural insights into allosteric modulation of GPCRs

By Christine Oswald, Senior Scientist at Heptares Therapeutics Ltd, UK

When: 10-12, February 8th
Where: M117, Thorvaldsensvej 40, 1st. fl.

Abstract: G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) regulate a range of physiological processes and thus they are extremely interesting as drug target.   Heptares’ proprietary StaR® technology is very valuable for the thermostabilisation of GPCRs in a chosen conformational state. This process generates thermostabilised StaR® protein that can be readily solubilised with detergent, purified and utilised for further applications such as biophysical screening techniques and structure determination via X-ray crystallography.   Recently, the usage of StaR® technology at Heptares Therapeutics Ltd. enabled the determination of structures from various GPCRs bound to their respective allosteric modulators. Here, I present structural insight into allosteric modulation of different GPCRs
