G protein coupled receptor structure and activation

Brian K. Kobilka
2007 Biochimica et Biophysica Acta - Biomembranes  
G protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) are remarkably versatile signaling molecules. The members of this large family of membrane proteins are activated by a spectrum of structurally diverse ligands, and have been shown to modulate the activity of different signaling pathways in a ligand specific manner. In this manuscript I will review what is known about the structure and mechanism of activation of GPCRs focusing primarily on two model systems, rhodopsin and the β 2 adrenoceptor. Abbreviations:
more » ... 2 AR, beta 2 adrenoceptor; GPCR, G protein coupled receptor; TM, transmembrane ☆ Amino acid numbering: The position of β 2 AR residues are followed by the Ballesteros general number [1] in superscript, in the form X.YY, where X refers to the TM segment and YY to the position relative to the most highly conserved amino acid in the TM segment, which is assigned an arbitrary position of 50.

Conformational complexity of G-protein-coupled receptors

Brian K. Kobilka, Xavier Deupi
2007 TIPS - Trends in Pharmacological Sciences  
G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are remarkably versatile signaling molecules. Members of this large family of membrane proteins respond to structurally diverse ligands and mediate most transmembrane signal transduction in response to hormones and neurotransmitters, and in response to the senses of sight, smell and taste. Individual GPCRs can signal through several Gprotein subtypes and through G-protein-independent pathways, often in a ligand-specific manner. This functional plasticity can

Here, we review what has been learned about the dynamic nature of the structure and mechanism of GPCR activation, primarily focusing on spectroscopic studies of purified human b 2 adrenergic receptor. Receptor conformations Proteins are often thought of as rigid structures, as in the lock-and-key model of receptor activation where the agonist

Structural insights into adrenergic receptor function and pharmacology

Brian K. Kobilka
2011 TIPS - Trends in Pharmacological Sciences  
It has been over 50 years since Sir James Black developed the first beta adrenergic receptor (βAR) blocker to treat heart disease. At that time, the concept of cell-surface receptors was relatively new and not widely accepted, and most of the tools now used to characterize plasma membrane receptors had not been developed. There has been remarkable progress in receptor biology since then, including the development of radioligand binding assays, the biochemical characterization of receptors as

More recently, progress in GPCR structural biology has led to insights into the three-dimensional structures of βARs receptors in both active and inactive states. Despite all of this progress, the process of developing a drug for a particular GPCR target has become more complex, timeconsuming, and expensive.
