A MOLECULAR HANDSHAKE: THE FIRST VIEW OF THE ENGAGEMENT OF INSULIN WITH ITS RECEPTOR

While insulin was discovered in 1922 and its structure has been known since 1969, a three-dimensional view of its interaction with the insulin receptor has been strikingly absent. This talk will present the first structural view of the insulin / insulin receptor interaction and show the involvement of a detailed molecular switch both within the hormone and within the receptor. The implications of this structure for therapeutic design will also be discussed. Research theme: Cardiovascular / Diabetes
