While the past 10 years have seen great advances in ligand-GPCR structures peptide GPCRs remain poorly understood. Hence the study of complex peptide receptors requires different approaches to allow structure-based drug design of agonists. This presentation will focus on the receptors for relaxin family peptides and the unique challenges of targeting these receptors with peptide mimetics and small molecules.
