G protein coupled receptor (GPCR) signaling

G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) represent the largest family of cell surface receptors. They share a common 7 transmembrane domain configuration and act to transduce extracellular stimuli to the interior of the cell. GPCRs are expressed in virtually every cell type and modulate an extremely wide range of physiological processes. They represent a rich source of targets for the pharmaceutical industry with approximately 30-50% of current pharmaceuticals targeting these proteins. Following repeated or continuous exposure to agonists GPCRs exhibit diminished responsiveness, a phenomenon termed receptor desensitisation. For many GPCRs rapid desensitisation is mediated by a family of serine/...

About Us

The Medical Research Council Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology (MRC LMCB) opened in 1993 on the Gower Street Campus of UCL. In 2013 the MRC LMCB became an MRC-UCL University Unit and Division within the Faculty of Life Sciences under the Directorship of Professor Mark Marsh

Our Vision

The scientific aims of the LMCB & Cell Biology Unit is to provide a molecular understanding of cell behaviour through discovery-based research. Cell biology is one of the most exciting and important areas of biomedical research and is likely to remain so for the foreseeable future.

Life at UCL

UCL enjoys a beautiful location at the heart of London. Studying and working at UCL will provide you with the opportunity to explore the best cultural and social events that makes London one of the most vibrant and multicultural cities in the world.
