• Researchers discover a new way in which insulin interacts with its receptor

    21 days ago - By ScienceDaily

    The biological actions of insulin are mediated by its receptor-the insulin receptor - which is localized on the cell surface. In a new study, researchers based in Germany, Canada, and Finland show how insulin interacts with its receptor at a second binding site. The scientists hope that these new details concerning insulin-receptor interactions will ultimately expand the current models of insulin binding to its receptor and pave the way towards new approaches to structure-based drug design.
