Design of the Peptidomimetics of the Dopamine Receptor Modulator Pro-Leu-Gly-NH2

These researchers are designing and synthesizing conformationally constrained peptidomimetics of the dopamine receptor Pro-Leu-Gly-NH2. The peptidomimetics are used to construct a pharmacophore model of the modulatory site. Peptidomimetic photoaffinity labeling agents are made in order to label the modulatory binding site and to use the G protein-coupled receptor model of the dopamine receptor to identify the modulatory site on the receptor.
