Method “Matches” Medicines to Their Unique Protein Receptors
Blog

A receptor (drug target) can shift from a single subunit to a multi-structure in the presence of a ligand (drug compound) – a process known as "oligomerization". Now, using photon excitation microscopy, researchers report that they can uncover the various protein receptor oligomers formed in the absence or presence of different drug candidates that bind to them.

Fentanyl Analogue Identification Toolkit Aids Forensic Toxicology
Blog

Getting an arrow in the target is hard enough but imagine trying to do it when the target is constantly moving or morphs into something that doesn’t even look like the target anymore? This is the challenge for forensic scientists trying to detect fentanyl in samples. We spoke to research scientist Alex Krotulski about his group’s arms race with the evolution of fentanyl variants.
