Fusion partner toolchest for the stabilization and crystallization of G protein-coupled receptors.
Structural studies of human G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) have recently been accelerated through the use of a fusion partner that was inserted into the third intracellular loop. Using chimerasExpand
