Protein-protein interactions are key in cellular signaling. G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), the largest superfamily of human membrane proteins, are able to transduce extracellular signals (e.g., hormones and neurotransmitters) to intracellular proteins, in particular the G proteins. Since GPCRs serve as primary targets of ~ 1/3 of currently marketed drugs, it is important to understand mechanisms of GPCR signaling in order to design selective and potent drug molecules. This chapter focuses on recent advances in computational studies of the GPCR-G protein interactions using bioinformatics, protein-protein docking and molecular dynamics simulation approaches.

Antiparallel Dimers of the Small Multidrug Resistance Protein EmrE Are More Stable Than Parallel Dimers Lloris-Garcerá, Pilar; Bianchi, Frans; Slusky, Joanna; Seppälä, Susanna; Daley, Daniel O.; von Heijne, Gunnar (American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 2012-06-14)The bacterial multidrug transporter EmrE is a dual-topology membrane protein and as such is able to insert into the membrane in two opposite orientations. The functional form of EmrE is a homodimer; however, the relative ...
Selectivity by Small-Molecule Inhibitors of Protein Interactions Can Be Driven by Protein Surface Fluctuations Johnson, David K.; Karanicolas, John (Public Library of Sciences, 2015-02-23)Small-molecules that inhibit interactions between specific pairs of proteins have long represented a promising avenue for therapeutic intervention in a variety of settings. Structural studies have shown that in many cases, ...
