Molecular modeling of the human serotonin(1A) receptor: role of membrane cholesterol in ligand binding of the receptor.

Serotonin(1A) receptors are important neurotransmitter receptors and belong to the superfamily of G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs). Although it is an important drug target, the crystal structure of the serotonin(1A) receptor has not been solved yet. Earlier homology models of the serotonin(1A) receptor were generated using rhodopsin as a template. We… CONTINUE READING
