The protein kinase v-akt murine thymoma viral oncogene homolog (AKT), a key regulator of cell survival and proliferation, is frequently hyperactivated in human cancers. Intramolecular pleckstrin homology (PH) domain-kinase domain (KD) interactions are important in maintaining AKT in an inactive state. AKT activation proceeds after a conformational change(More)
Members of the class B family of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) bind peptide hormones and have causal roles in many diseases, ranging from diabetes and osteoporosis to anxiety. Although peptide, small-molecule, and antibody inhibitors of these GPCRs have been identified, structure-based descriptions of receptor antagonism are scarce. Here we report the(More)
