Date:7/23/2013

PALO ALTO, Calif., July 23, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- ConfometRx is pleased to announce that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) recently awarded ConfometRx Patent No. 8,470,561 entitled "GPCR comprising an IC2 insertion," which covers G protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) that have a stabilizing fusion in the second intracellular loop (IC2). Importantly, this patent broadly covers any GPCR that has a stable, folded protein insertion in its IC2 region, as well as crystals containing the same. Also claimed is a method of crystallizing a GPCR fusion protein that has a stable, folded protein insertion in the IC2 region. This patent generically covers stabilizing IC2 fusions of family A, B, and C GPCRs, which are currently of significant interest to the scientific community.
