Erfassung der Internalisierung von GPCRs mit CRISPR/Cas9

Receptors are prevalent drug targets as they translate signals from outside the cell to cellular reactions. In drug finding and characterization it is not only required to measure ligand binding, but just as well subsequent regulatory steps including desensitizing protein interactions. Here, we show how CRISPR/Cas9 allowed endogenous expression of a G-protein coupled receptor (GPCR) and how that was used to study protein inter - actions and internalization of a cancer progressing receptor.
