CMBI 6656 - Receptor Effector Systems


Prerequisite: CMBI 6601  or CMBI 6603  or CMBI 6606 , or consent of the instructor. Cellular receptors and their effector systems are responsible for the ability of cells to detect and respond to stimuli. These proteins are of critical importance to the development of drugs to control the function of cells. This course examines the structure of receptors from ion channels to DNA binding proteins, followed by an examination of the signalling pathways that propagate the signal through the cell. Also covered: the design and interpretation of binding studies for receptor ligand interactions. 3 credits.
