IUPHAR Reviews

Virtual Issue - IUPHAR Reviews


This is the list of the most recent IUPHAR review articles published in British Journal of Pharmacology. They are written and validated by the committees of NC-IUPHAR (the Nomenclature Committee of IUPHAR; the body that decides upon the official names of drug targets such as receptors, channels, transporters and enzymes). Previous members of the series can be found at British Journal of Pharmacology collaborates with IUPHAR (International Union of Basic and Clinical Pharmacology) to produce a database and authoritative review articles.The database, provides the classification and naming of human drug targets and their ligands and this is permanently archived in Concise Guide to PHARMACOLOGY 2013/14
