GPCRs as Therapeutic Targets

GPCRs as Therapeutic Targets 

A thorough discussion of the structure, pharmacology, function, and role of G protein-coupled receptors

In GPCRs as Therapeutic Agents, distinguished researcher Dr. Annette Gilchrist delivers an authoritative and in-depth compendium of a vibrant and active area of academic and industrial drug discovery. The book serves as an important reference for new and experienced researchers studying G protein-coupled receptors and discusses the molecular pharmacology of this important target class. It also includes up-to-date material on GPCR structures and structure-based drug design.

The book explores the role of GPCRs in the treatment of disease and novel approaches to their study. In addition to providing information on the structure, pharmacology, and function of GPCRs, it discusses their role in disease states, and advances new methods for measuring GPCR activity in an accessible and engaging way. The book includes:

A thorough introduction to the molecular pharmacology of G protein-coupled receptors, including up-to-date material on GPCR structures and structure-based drug design
In-depth discussions of the evolving pharmacology for GPCRs, intracellular trafficking, and subcellular GPCR signaling
Comprehensive explorations of allosteric modulation, receptor dimerization, deorphanization, and ubiquitination
Fulsome treatments of the role played by GPCRs in the treatments of cancer, substance use disorders, cerebrovascular diseases, and metabolic diseases
Perfect for researchers in biochemistry, cell biology, and pharmacology, GPCRs as Therapeutic Agents will also earn a place in the libraries of professionals working in medicinal chemistry, structural biology, and clinical pharmacology.
