• Self vs non-self in avians and mammals

    Xenobiotic and pathogen recognition by the immune system relies on ability to discriminate self and non-self epitopes. Throughout their maturation process, antibodies are selected in a both positive and negative manner. This allows to trigger an immune response only against foreign substances such pathogens, not in the host organism. Mammals and avians are separated by nearly 300 000 000 years of evolution. Consequently, minor changes in genome sequences between mammals are reflected by high similarity in protein primary sequences, whereas the difference...

  • G Protein-Coupled Receptors targeted by antibodies raised against three dimensional epitopes

    Why target GPCRs with antibodies?

    The G Protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) superfamily represents the largest and single most important family of human drug targets. GPCRs play a central role in a plethora of biological processes, and are linked to a wide range of therapeutic areas including cancer, diabetes, inflammation, cardiovascular diseases, and chronic pain. Expressed in every type of cell in the body, GPCRs relay signals from outside the cell, across the membrane, to intracellular signalling pathways.
