Nuclear Receptors: From Structure to the Clinic by Iain J. McEwan, Raj Kumar

By Iain J. McEwan, Raj Kumar

Nuclear Receptors specializes in the structural research of nuclear receptors from the preliminary paintings utilizing remoted protein domain names to the more moderen interesting advancements investigating the conformational form of full-length receptor complexes. The ebook additionally studies the constitution of key nuclear receptor co-regulatory proteins. It brings jointly, for the 1st time, a accomplished evaluation of nuclear receptor constitution and the significance of receptor conformation underpinning allosteric law by way of diverse ligands (hormone, medications, DNA reaction parts, protein-protein interactions) and receptor activity.

The nuclear receptor superfamily, together with receptors for steroid hormones and non-steroid ligands, are pivotal to basic body structure, regulating methods as assorted as copy, metabolism, the immune method and mind improvement. the 1st family members have been cloned over 25 years in the past, which heralded within the proposal of a superfamily of intracellular receptor proteins that certain small molecule ligands: classical steroid hormones, supplementations, fatty acids and different items of metabolism. those signs are then transmitted via multiprotein receptor-DNA complexes, resulting in the law of objective genes, frequently in a cell-selective demeanour. The cloning of the receptor cDNAs additionally ushered in an period of extraordinary research of the mechanisms of motion of those ligand-activated transcription elements. ​
