For Immediate Release
Oak Brook, IL – The January edition of SLAS Discovery features the cover article, “Cryo-EM: The Resolution Revolution and Drug Discovery” by Taiana Maia de Oliveira, Ph.D., Lotte van Beek, Ph.D., Fiona Shilliday, Ph.D., Judit E. Debreczeni, Ph.D., and Chris Phillips, Ph.D., from AstraZeneca.
Cryo-EM, a fast-growing technique in the pharmaceutical industry, enables structure determination of sought-after targets such as large multiprotein complexes and membrane proteins that eluded other structural biology methods. The intricate interactions between compounds and proteins are crucial in accelerating the drug discovery process. The cover article reviews how the structural understanding gained through Cryo-EM is influencing drug discovery projects focused on TRP channels, GPCRs, ribosomes and other high value targets.
The January issues of SLAS Discovery includes 13 articles of Original Research in addition to the cover article.
