Keystone Symposia : Transmembrane Signaling by GPCRs and Channels

January 23 - 28, 2011 • Sagebrush Inn and Conference Center • Taos, New Mexico, USA

August 26, 2010

The goal of this meeting is to discuss the molecular mechanisms of transmembrane signaling on the basis of three protein classes, i.e. G protein-coupled receptors, ion channels and transporters.

Available protein structures together with biophysical and functional approaches will provide guidance to explore similarities and differences of the underlying mechanisms. Exemplified will be receptors and channels as well as proteins with dual or modified functions, such as channelrhodopsin. A comparative view is thought to bring researchers from diverse fields together and to stimulate further development of transmembrane signaling proteins in drug discovery and fighting disease.

Meeting Program :

  • Keynote Session
  • GPCR Structure and Intramolecular Signal Transduction
  • Interaction of GPCRs with Signaling Proteins and Ligands
  • Signal Transduction by Microbial Rhodopsins
  • Role of Lipids in Transmembrane Signaling
  • Novel Approaches
  • Ion Channel Structure and Function
  • Mechanisms of Channels and Transporters

You may register on the meeting web site until January 23, 2011.
