  • Objective: The octopamine receptor which belongs to the rhodopsin receptor family ie., class A of G protein-coupled receptors serves as neurohormone, neurotransmitter and neuromodulator. So far the information on the three dimensional structure for octopamine receptor is not available for any organism including silkworm. Here we modelled the octopamine receptor and analyzed the binding site of known aagonist and screened the novel candidates using the pharmacophore method. Methods: The… CONTINUE READING
