Valium Soothes Best If Its Target Receptor Snuggles with Auxiliary Protein

06:00 EDT 11 Oct 2019 | Genetic Engineering News

A single-passing membrane protein encoded by a gene called Shisa7 appears to boost the nerve-calming effects of valium and other benzodiazepines by sticking to GABA type A neurotransmitter receptors. This molecular interaction is significant because it could help researchers improve their understanding of sedatives and help drug developers recognize the importance of auxiliary proteins and their effects.
