The vector contains a first segment comprising at least a fragment of the extreme amino-terminal coding sequence of a yeast G protein coupled receptor.
This achievement represents rapid progress for the collaboration, which was launched in September 2010 to develop G protein coupled receptor (GPCR)-targeted therapeutic compounds utilizing Anchor's proprietary pepducin technology.
Many receptors for hormones, neurotransmitters, neuropeptides, chemokines, and autocrine and paracrine signaling molecules interact with heterotrimeric G proteins to exert their actions on target cells [1]; these receptors are considered G protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) [2].
The contract is for applying RuiYi's iCAPS (Intermembranous Antigen Presenting System) technology to develop new monoclonal antibodies with specific binding to G protein coupled receptors, in order to investigate the biological function and structure of G protein coupled receptors.
