Biochemistry Seminar: Professor Debbie Hay and Dr Michael Garelja, Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology

In September 2008, Debbie gave a seminar of the same title to this Department. In this updated seminar we will introduce receptor activity-modifying proteins (RAMPs) and reflect on what we know now about how they affect G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) function.

More than a decade on from Debbie's original seminar, we have a wealth of structural data to help us understand how these receptor complexes function, new insights into their cellular signalling and multiple FDA-approved drugs for migraine.

Debbie will give an update on the canonical role of RAMPs and Michael will provide insights into novel GPCR partners in the context of new analyses suggesting that RAMPs co-evolved with GPCRs and may have broad functions in regulating their activity.
