Abstract.Structure-based drug discovery has proven useful in improving and shortening the drug development process. The approach of structural genomics to study a large number of targets in parallel has been commonly applied to protein families and even whole genomes. Paradoxically, although membrane proteins represent the largest type of drug targets, up to 70% today, determination of their structure has been modest compared to that of soluble proteins. Because membrane proteins are important…

Structure-function relationships in membrane protein families
TLDR
A hierarchical large-scale classification approach covering both structural and functional aspects is presented and it is shown that the developed approach is in reasonable agreement with existing classification methods and that the quality of this method improves by gradually considering additional structurally relevant information.
Rational and Irrational Approaches to Convince a Protein to Crystallize
TLDR
This chapter will focus on the three major and crucial steps of successful protein crystallization, and suggests strategies how to perform and optimize each of these three steps on the road of protein structure determination.
Defining the fold space of membrane proteins: The CAMPS database
TLDR
A library of Hidden Markov Models (HMM) derived from sequence alignments of TMH at three main levels of interest for structural genomics: fold, function, and modeling distance are presented.
Membrane Protein Structure: Techniques
TLDR
This review describes the state-of-the-art methods that have successfully produced high-resolution membrane protein structures to date and discusses X-ray crystallography, as this technique has made by far the largest contribution to the authors' current knowledge of membrane protein structure.
Heterologous expression of membrane proteins for structural analysis.
TLDR
This review focuses on the heterologous expression systems now available to produce large amounts of MPs for structural proteomics, and describes the strategies that allowed the determination of the structure of the first heterologously expressed mammalian MPs.
Detection of Ligand Binding to Nucleotide Sugar Transporters by STD NMR Spectroscopy
Fifty percent of all drugs on the market target integral membrane proteins, however, crystallization and structure determination of these proteins for use in the drug discovery process, particularly
Recent developments in membrane-protein structural genomics
Recent work has identified the topology of almost all the inner membrane proteins in Escherichia coli, and advances in nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy now allow the determination of α-helical

Membrane Protein Production for Structural Analysis
TLDR

TLDR
The MePNet (Membrane Protein Network) was established to overexpress a large number of GPCRs in three major expression systems, based on Escherichia coli, Pichia pastoris and Semliki Forest virus vectors, and functional activity was determined by binding assays in yeast and mammalian cells.
