Nuevolution announces the publication of a second scientific article from the collaboration with Nobel Laureate Dr. Robert J. Lefkowitz
Stockholm, 17 May 2018. Nuevolution AB (publ) (NUE.ST) today announced the publication of the scientific article entitled "Small Molecule Positive Allosteric Modulators of the β2-Adrenergic Receptor Isolated from DNA Encoded Libraries” in the journal Molecular Pharmacology.
The new article presents further exciting work from the ongoing collaboration between Nuevolution and the group of Nobel Laureate Dr. Robert J. Lefkowitz at Duke University involving the screening of Nuevolution compound libraries against an important class of targets named GPCRs. The new publication extends our previous joint publication from 2017 now showing the identification of compounds capable of stimulating signaling across a cell membrane by a key GPCR.
“We have a very strong collaboration with the world-leading group of Dr. Lefkowitz’ and we are happy to see yet another great publication from this joint work and to showcase the capability of our technology on GPCR receptors” said Thomas Franch, CSO of Nuevolution and continued “The two joint publications identifying both negative and positive allosteric GPCR modulators really open up novel future opportunities for identifying drug candidates against many GPCR’s relevant for human diseases”.
