Molecular Pharmacology of G Protein-Coupled Receptors 2017


Call for Papers: Molecular Pharmacology of G Protein-Coupled Receptors Themed Issue

British Journal of Pharmacology will be publishing a special ‘Themed Issue’ entitled ‘Molecular Pharmacology of G Protein-Coupled Receptors’, with Roger Summers and Chris Langmead as Guest Editors.

In this issue on we will provide an up-to-date account of recent advances in the field of G-protein receptor research.

The issue will include authoritative state of the art review articles from:

  • Sophie Bradley & Andrew Tobin: Targeting GPCRs in neurodegeneration
  • Irina Kufareva: Structural insights into binding, activation, and antagonism of chemokine receptors
  • Lauren May: Pharmacological approaches to enhance the clinical translation of adenosine receptor therapeutics
  • Larry Miller & Aditya Desai: Importance of the membrane microenvironment for protein-coupled receptor function in metabolic disease
  • Graeme Milligan: Pharmacology and functions of the long chain fatty acid receptors
  • Dana Hutchinson: Mirabegron: potential off target effects and uses beyond the bladder
  • Karen O’Malley: GPCR signaling from within the cell
  • Greg Scherer: Opioid signaling mechanisms in neurons and glial cells that underlie opioid analgesia and tolerance
  • Nicola Smith: Gender differences in cardiovascular disease: focus on G protein-coupled receptors
  • Rajesh Thakker & Fadil Hannan: GPCRs beyond the bench: Lessons from the CaSR signalling pathway
  • Emma van der Westhuizen: Allosteric modulators at muscarinic AChRs
  • Dmitry Veprintsev: Allostery in GPCR signaling
  • Ee Von Moo: The role of allosteric modulators in disease and physiology
  • Chris Walker: PACAP receptor pharmacology
  • Francis Willard: GPCR drug discovery for metabolic diseases- is combination therapy the way forward?
  • Briony Winters: The role and therapeutic potential of endogenous opioid signalling in anxiety disorders
