Transmembrane Signaling Analysis in Model Membrane Systems

Luigino Grasso
Studying the complex mechanisms of transducing an extracellular signal across a plasma membrane to initiate an intracellular responce is of fundamental importance for a cell’s function. Transmembrane signaling is the key allowing cells to sense and communicate with its environment. Signal transduction is primarily mediated by numerous membrane receptors. In this thesis we investigated the function of G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCR). GPCRs represent the largest and most diverse group of membrane proteins, encoded by more than...
