Membrane bound G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) play an integral role in sensing the external environment of the cell. A broad range of external stimuli signal through GPCRs, including neurotransmitters, hormones, odor molecules, cations, and even photons. Their position at the apex of essential signal transduction pathways means that malfunctioning of these molecules frequently leads to disease, making them a perfect target for drug therapies. Further, naturally occurring and induced mutations in GPCRs can provide valuable information about these signaling pathways and their role in human pathologies.

You are invited to join our panel of thought leaders in a live video webinar discussion about these very important proteins. During the broadcast, you will:
• gain insight into the broad range of GPCR proteins and their role in signaling and disease
• learn about techniques and technologies available to study GPCRs
• see data from recent GCPR studies, presented by top scientists in the field
• have the opportunity to ask questions of the expert panel LIVE during the event

Eppendorf epMotion Plug'n'Prep - Automate ANY Nucleic Acid Purification Protocol in Seconds

Because epMotion is an open system, you are free to choose the type of extraction kits you need from the manufacturers that you prefer.

And since epMotion can fully automate your protocol, you are also free to do other tasks while your sample is being purified. All epMotion methods have been optimized and tested in cooperation with the kit manufacturer. Our Plug'n'Prep protocols provide superior nucleic acid yield and purity.
