47_09b/2008Inside Cover: The Structure of the Neuropeptide Bradykinin Bound to the Human G-Protein Coupled Receptor Bradykinin B2 as Determined by Solid-State NMR Spectroscopy (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 9/2008)

The structure of the neuropeptide bradykinin bound to the human G-protein-coupled bradykinin subtype 2 receptor has been determined by solid-state NMR spectroscopy. As described by C. Glaubitz and co-workers in their Communication on page 1668 ff., its elongated conformation comprises an α-helical turn at the N terminus and a β turn at the C terminus. This structure offers, for the first time, an experimental template for tailored drug design for this human GPCR.
