Additional 3D Structures of Hormones and Hormone Receptors and Related Molecules


Beta-2 Adrenergic Receptor
The human β2 adrenergic receptor bound to a hormone analog and G-protein (3sn6) is featured in an image on the right, and additional structures are on the Adrenergic receptor page.


Drag the structure with the mouse to rotate
An activated G protein-coupled receptor (human β-2 adrenergic receptor in blue ) in a complex with a heterotrimeric G protein (3 subunits:reddish to orange-brown) and hormone (gold) (3sn6), resolution 3.2Å. The boundaries of the membrane in which the GPCR sits are represented in light green.
