Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This lecture covers the basics of ligand receptor interactions that relates chemical interactions to biological processes. After introducing bonding and energetics, ligand-respector interactions are discussed in the context of biology by highlighting several types of endocrine ligands, their receptors, signal transduction and intracellular transport. Finally, the crucial role of ligand-receptor interactions for drug discovery is discussed and the importance of analytical techniques to unravel disease processes is stressed.
