G protein-coupled receptors

in this lecture, the Nobel prize winner Prof. Kobilka gived us an insight into the family of G -Protein-Coupled-Receptors (GPCR), the largest family of cell surface receptors. Given the role in regulation of all aspects of human physiology GPCR are the main target of today’s pharmaceuticals. He discussed approaches to characterize the structure and mechanistic activation of GPCR at molecular level.
