"Identification and pharmacological profiling of novel angiotensin receptor complexes” AND "Alternative Sources of Funding". Other events...
Elizabeth Johnstone is in the first year of her Pharmacology PhD at the Western Australian Institute for Medical Research. Based in A/Prof Kevin Pfleger’s Molecular Endocrinology – GPCR lab, her research involves investigating the formation of angiotensin receptor complexes. Both the angiotensin type 1 (AT1R) and type 2 (AT2R) receptors are known to associate with other receptors resulting in the formation of heteromers with unique pharmacological profiles. So far Elizabeth has characterised the heteromer that forms between the AT2R and the related bradykinin type 2 receptor, showing that it has unique regulatory and internalisation properties from the monomeric AT2R.
