Biological Activity for Sorbic acid

Sorbic acid is an activator of hFFA2-DREADDs. Inhibits forskolin-induced cAMP production (IC50 ∼ 1 μM) and promotes accumulation of inositol monophosphates (IC50 >1 μM) in cells expressing hFFA2-DREADD. Promotes the release of GLP-1 from colonic crypts derived from hFFA2-DREADD-expressing mice.

Allosteric GPCR Pharmacology Poster

Allosteric GPCR Pharmacology Poster

G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are intrinsically allosteric proteins. This poster provides insights into allosteric mechanisms of GPCR biology, highlighting key facets of GPCR allostery and therapeutic applications of allosteric modulators.

GPCR Efficacy and Biased Agonism Poster

GPCR Efficacy and Biased Agonism Poster

GPCRs can interact with multiple distinct transducers or regulatory proteins and these can be preferentially engaged in an agonist-specific manner giving rise to biased agonism. This poster discusses cutting edge GPCR signaling pharmacology and highlights therapeutic applications of biased agonism.
