Abstract Post-translational modifications (PTMs) are key events in signal transduction since they affect protein function by regulating their abundance and/or activity. PTMs involve the covalent attachment of functional groups to specific amino acids. Since they tend to be generally reversible, PTMs serve as regulators of signal transduction pathways. G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are major signaling proteins that undergo multiple types of PTMs. In this Review, we focus on the opioid receptors, members of GPCR family A, and highlight recent advances in the field that have underscored the importance of PTMs i...

Determining the clinically optimal dose in methadone maintenance therapy (MMT) is a time-consuming procedure, which considers clinical signs and symptoms. To perform a quantitative trait locus association for identifying genetic variants for MMT dosage that underlie heroin addiction and methadone metabolism and then integrate several genotypic and phenotypic factors are potential predictors for clinically optimal MMT dose for personalized prescription. In total, 316 heroin-dependent patients undergoing MMT were recruited at the Addiction Center of the China Medical University Hospital. A multinomial logistic regression m...

No wonder then that many of us working within digital transformation have hoped to open minds and inspire a new way of working through big, buzzy projects.    There ’s now even a blueprint for this type of innovation: find a tech partner, design a pilot with a trending technology, and ‘signal’ to peers, rivals and shareholders that you’re embracing the future with a flashy press release.   But when we sat down with Dan Rothman the Chief Digital Officer, Dainippon Sumitomo Pharma and Milind Ka...
