Molecular Pharmacology

Research focus

The common research theme of the Molecular Pharmacology Laboratory (MolPharm) is the relationship between structure and function of 7TM (seven transmembrane segment), G protein-coupled receptors.

Structure-function studies of 7TM G protein coupled receptors within in particular the immune system (cytokine and lipid receptors) and the endocrine system (incretin, neuropeptide, melanocortin, melatonin, lipid and orphan receptors). This includes the molecular basis for ligand recognition and receptor activation, action of allosteric and orthosteric agonists, antagonists, super- and inverse agonists. Identification of novel compounds by site-directed drug discovery methods and chemogenomics. Description of signalling phenomena such as constitutive activity, functional selectivity (biased activity) and receptor cross-talk.
