Scientists Discover Intricacies of Serotonin Receptor Crucial for Better Drugs

News

Researchers have figured out precisely why one drug binds to the serotonin receptor 5-HT2BR and activates it to cause heart problems while very similar drugs do not. They've also discovered why a third drug acts like a 5-HT2BR antagonist - it blocks the receptor's activity - while the very well-known similar hallucinogenic drug LSD does not.

Progress toward Plugging an Antibiotic Pump

News

Each year in the U.S., at least 23,000 people die from infections caused by antibiotic resistant bacteria. Using computer modeling, researchers are developing the means to prevent some of those deaths. One way bacteria develop resistance is by producing pumps that spit out antibiotics, before they can do any damage. The researchers teased out the details of how one antibiotic pump works.
