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…

A Novel Octopamine Receptor with Preferential Expression inDrosophila Mushroom Bodies
TLDR
The preferential expression of OAMB in mushroom bodies and its capacity to produce cAMP accumulation suggest an important role in synaptic modulation underlying behavioral plasticity.
A Model for Constitutive Lutropin Receptor Activation Based on Molecular Simulation and Engineered Mutations in Transmembrane Helices 6 and 7*
Many naturally occurring and engineered mutations lead to constitutive activation of the G protein-coupled lutropin receptor (LHR), some of which also result in reduced ligand responsiveness. To
PharmaGist: a webserver for ligand-based pharmacophore detection
TLDR
This work presents a freely available web server, named PharmaGist, for pharmacophore detection, which does not require the structure of the target receptor and handles the flexibility of the input ligands explicitly and in deterministic manner within the alignment process.
In silico ligand-based pharmacophore model generation for the identification of novel Pneumocystis carinii DHFR inhibitors
TLDR
A model for the design of ligand-based pharmacophore onto the set of 10 compounds of eight different classes along with the standard drug trimethoprim is presented and results indicate that the in silico methods are valuable for the prediction of the biological activity of the compound or compound library by screening it against a predicted pharmacophores.
Phenyliminoimidazolidines. Characterization of a class of potent agonists of octopamine-sensitive adenylate cyclase and their use in understanding the pharmacology of octopamine receptors.
TLDR
Comparison of the relative binding affinities of various PIIs for mammalian alpha-adrenergic receptors, as well as the ability of various antagonists to block PII binding, strongly suggested that the active PIIs are affecting a class of octopamine receptors distinct from mammalian alpha 1- or alpha 2-adRenergic receptors.

Allosteric site on muscarinic acetylcholine receptors: identification of two amino acids in the muscarinic M2 receptor that account entirely for the M2/M5 subtype selectivities of some structurally diverse allosteric ligands in N-methylscopolamine-occupied receptors.
TLDR
Two amino acids account entirely for the (approximately 100-fold) M2/M5 selectivity of the alkane-bisammonium and the caracurine V type allosteric ligands at NMS-free M2 receptors.
