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.
