The work reveals the structural features of antagonist-bound CB2 and the unique ligand binding mode, which will facilitate rational drug design toward precise modulation of the endocannabinoid system. These new findings are published in the prestigious journal Cell, titled “Crystal structure of the Human Cannabinoid Receptor CB2”.
The Symposium on Probing Protein Structures with Bio-MS and Complementary Technologies was held at ShanghaiTech University on November 18th, organized by Shui Wenjing Group of iHuman Institute and supported by Shanghai Institute for Advanced Studies, CAS.
On November 2nd, the 17th International Conference on the Crystallization of Biological Macromolecules (ICCBM17) and the 6th Annual iHuman Forum successfully concluded. Co- hosted by iHuman Institute and Northwestern Polytechnical University as well as Shanghai Biophysical Society, ICCBM is a well-recognized international academic conference affiliated to the International Organization for Biological Crystallization (IOBCr). Held every two years, it has a strong reputation in the scientific and technological community.
