- We can order this from the publisher
Explains the experimental and theoretical methods used to characterize interactions between ligands and receptors-providing the pharmacological information needed to solve treatment problems and facilitate the drug design process!
Demonstrating the achievements of the receptor-based approach in therapeutics and indicating future directions, Receptor-Based Drug Design
introduces novel computer-assisted strategies for the design of new agonists, antagonists, and inverse agonists for G-protein-coupled receptors
shows how to assess agonist concentration-effect curve data
discusses radioligand binding assays
presents new in vitro multiarray assays for G-protein-coupled receptors
explains the use of individual second messenger signaling responses in analyzing drug-receptor interactions
examines the role of electrophysiology in finding new drugs and drug targets
describes selectively acting b-adrenoceptor agonists and glucocorticoid steroids for asthma treatment
outlines the rationale for using angiotensin receptor antagonists
Written by over 25 international authorities and containing nearly 1200 bibliographic citations, Receptor-Based Drug Design is a practical resource for pharmacologists, pharmacists, and pharmaceutical scientists; organic and medicinal chemists and biochemists; molecular biologists; biomedical researchers; and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.
