Applications Thursday: GPCR Research

Beta-2 adrenergic receptorIn tribute to Dr. Robert Lefkowitz and Dr. Brian Kobilka for winning the 2012 Nobel prize in Chemistry for their research on G-Protein Coupled Receptors, we are highlighting several publications from Dr. Lefkowitz’s laboratory that have cited the use of a BMG LABTECH microplate reader.

Dr. Lefkowitz’s lab has used a BMG LABTECH microplate reader  to measure amongst other things, intracellular calcium flux, cAMP accumulation, and b-arrestin recruitment, which are all downstream effects of GPCRs.
You can find out more about some of these publications here:
