Agonists to ions: getting deep into receptor activation

Speaker: Anthony Auerbach

Institution: University at Buffalo
Abstract: There is an intro on receptors suitable for students, then the topic is efficiency and suitable for pharmacologists, then it’s about linear free energy and suitable for bio chemists. In a nutshell I will talk about correlated energy changes inside binding and gating. I’ll tie it all up with a ‘zippet’ mechanism for receptor activation.
