Summary
Heterotrimeric G-proteins transduce signals from activated G-protein-coupled receptors to intracellular signaling cascades. Scientists at the MPI for Heart and Lung Research have a longstanding interest in the role of the families Gq/G11 and G12/G13, their upstream activators and downstream effectors, in cardiovascular and immunological functions. The long-term goal of their work is to identify new targets for the treatment of chronic cardiovascular and immune disease.
