Abstract:
G Protein-Coupled Receptors (GPCRs) are a class of membrane-bound receptors of considerable interest to the pharmaceutical industry, with greater than 25% of pharmaceutical research efforts directed toward the discovery of agonists or antagonists for these receptors. It is a considerable challenge in drug discovery to able to predict where a ligand will bind at a receptor and to determine the positions that describe how ligand-receptor selectivity occurs. Current research strategies are aimed towards homology modelling and literature evidence of binding mode in order to identify sites of ligand binding within GPCRs.
