G Protein-coupled Receptors in Drug Discovery
Infographic Jan 08, 2018 | by Laura Elizabeth Mason, Science Writer for Technology Networks
G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are the largest human membrane protein family. These receptors play a diverse role in numerous physiological processes and possess ‘druggable’ sites making them an attractive pharmacological target.
This infographic summarizes approved and investigational drugs, GPCR targets, and associated indications.

Cryopreservation, the use of very low temperatures and cryoprotectants to preserve structurally intact cells and tissues, is essential to many areas of research and medicine. Find out why cryopreservation is used, how cryoprotectants reduce cell shrinkage, and learn about the therapies dependent on successful cryopreservation.READ MORE
