We present a simple one-pot co-assembly method for the synthesis of hierarchically structured pigment particles consisting of silica inverse-opal bricks that are doped with plasmonic absorbers. We study the interplay between the plasmonic and photonic resonances and their effect on the visual appearance of macroscopic collections of photonic bricks that are(More)
The neuropeptide Y2 receptor (Y2R) is involved in different pathophysiological processes such as epilepsy, mood disorders, angiogenesis and tumor growth. Therefore, the Y2R is an interesting target for drug development. A detailed understanding of the binding pocket could facilitate the development of highly selective antagonists to study the role of Y2R in(More)
G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) are involved in many physiological and pathophysiological roles. Many important drugs act on GPCRs, either by blocking them (antagonists) or by mimicking the natural ligand (agonists). As GPCRs have been shown to internalize a new concept is currently investigated: application of agonistic ligands fused to drugs to allow(More)
