Cell-surface receptors are the targets for more than 60% of current drugs. Traditionally, optimizing the interaction of lead molecules with the binding site for the endogenous agonist (orthosteric site) has been viewed as the best means of achieving selectivity of action. However, recent developments have highlighted the fact that drugs can interact with binding sites on the receptor molecule that are distinct from the orthosteric site, known as allosteric sites. Allosteric modulators could… Expand

Paper Mentions

Allosteric targeting of receptor tyrosine kinases
TLDR
Allosteric mechanisms of structurally distinct molecules that target the various receptor families are more alike than originally anticipated and include selectivity, orthosteric probe dependence and pathway-biased signaling. Expand
Drugs for allosteric sites on receptors.
TLDR
The presence of druggable, topographically distinct allosteric sites on a wide range of receptor families has offered new paradigms for small molecules to modulate receptor function and key principles and strategies have emerged for the design of ligands/drugs for allosterIC sites. Expand
Allosteric modulators of G-protein-coupled receptors.
TLDR
The current challenge for modulator-based GPCR drug discovery is the optimization of both binding and functional assays to better detect and validate allosteric ligands. Expand
In-Target versus Off-Target allosteric modulators of GPCRs
TLDR
This work highlights the different molecular mechanisms that could be responsible for this phenotype, distinguishing between the commonly assumed In-Target and potential Off-Target modulators. Expand
Allosteric agonists of 7TM receptors: expanding the pharmacological toolbox.
TLDR
The current status of putative allosteric agonists of 7TM receptors is reviewed, and the promises and challenges that this class of ligand might pose for pharmacologists and the drug-discovery industry are discussed. Expand
Molecular alliance-from orthosteric and allosteric ligands to dualsteric/bitopic agonists at G protein coupled receptors.
TLDR
This paper presents evidence that orthosteric/allosteric, in other words "dualsteric", hybrid compounds unite subtype selectivity and receptor activation and offers access to GPCR modulators with an unprecedented receptor-subtype and signaling selectivity profile and, as a consequence, to drugs with fewer side effects. Expand
Receptor Targets in Drug Discovery
TLDR
Receptors, located on both the cell surface and within the cell are the defined molecular targets through which drugs produce their beneficial effects in various disease states and can be used in conjunction with high- throughput screening approaches to identify molecules that bind with relatively high affinity to these targets. Expand
Allosteric Modulation of Endogenous Metabolites as an Avenue for Drug Discovery
TLDR
It is demonstrated that allosteric ligands can cause marked potentiation of previously “inert” metabolic products of neurotransmitters and peptide hormones, a novel consequence of the phenomenon of probe dependence. Expand

Allosteric Modulators of G Protein-Coupled Receptors: Future Therapeutics for Complex Physiological Disorders
TLDR
Allosteric modulator ligands offer the prospect of engendering a facile stimulus-bias in orthosteric ligand signaling, paving the way for not only receptor-selective but also signaling pathway- selective therapies. Expand

TLDR
A mathematical model of allosteric interactions at pharmacological receptors has been investigated and used to provide a potential mechanistic explanation for the functional effects of the A(1) adenosine receptor allosterIC enhancer PD 81,723 and a recently reported allosterics modulator of type 1 metabotropic glutamate receptors.

TLDR
The theoretical basis for using radioligand binding and pharmacological techniques to estimate the dissociation constants of drugs which interact allosterically with receptors is described and the effect of changes in affinity and intrinsic efficacy of the agonist-receptor complex is predicted.

TLDR
It is shown that for a member of this family of receptors (delta opioid receptors in membranes of NG108-15 neuroblastoma-glioma cells), two types of competitive antagonists can be distinguished and one has no intrinsic activity and the second can inhibit GTPase and thus exhibits negative intrinsic activity.
