About the Division...
The ASPET Division for Molecular Pharmacology serves members
applying approaches of biochemistry, biophysics, genetics, and
molecular biology to study molecular mechanisms of drug action,
regardless of the class of drug. Areas of interest include (but are not
limited to): drug receptor-effector coupling and its regulation (e.g.
receptor- structure and function, G proteins, kinases, phosphatases,
and second messenger synthesis and degradation), voltage- and
ligand-gated ion channels, antimicrobial and antineoplastic drug
action, steroid and growth factor receptors, gene regulation, and
identification of molecular targets for drugs.
