Metabotropic glutamate receptors are class C G-protein-coupled receptors which respond to the neurotransmitter glutamate. Structural studies have been restricted to the amino-terminal extracellular domain, providing little understanding of the membrane-spanning signal transduction domain. Metabotropic glutamate receptor 5 is of considerable interest as a(More)
The immobilisation of proteins on to nanoparticles has a number of applications ranging from biocatalysis through to cellular delivery of biopharmaceuticals. Here we describe a phosphopantetheinyl transferase (Sfp)-catalysed method for immobilising proteins bearing a small 12-mer "ybbR" tag on to nanoparticles functionalised with coenzyme A. The(More)
