So altered GPCRs were then allowed to react with hydrophilic, cysteine-specific methanethiosulfonate (MTS-X) reagents, followed by radioligand binding assays to determine if ligand accessibility had been reduced. Any reduction was determined indicative of residues that resided in the aqueous phase of the GPCR. A clear picture of GPCR structure is key to understanding how they discriminate between and bind to potential signaling partners. Such knowledge is critical because the GPCR family of proteins is often the target of drug design and discovery. Consequently, my research interests have the potential to greatly impact the field of health.
After decades of intensive, tedious and tiresome studying they were able to uncover a mystery of the human body which now opens many doors to new studies that would be beneficial to society.

Photosynthesis is a process that consists of two sets of reactions, light reactions and light independent reactions. The light reactions occur in the chloroplasts on the membranes referred to as thylakoids. The thylakoid membranes participate in an electron transport chain to harvest energy from light, in the form of photons, and convert that energy into chemical energy such as adenosine triphosphate or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate. (Mykles et al. 2016) The research conducted in the BZ 310-L06 laboratory analyzed the thylakoid membranes ability to perform photosynthesis by having run a series of experimental trials, that were modifications of the Robert Hill reaction, and then measured the absorbance of the trials to determine

Therefore to understand their function other techniques must be used to study them. The most useful approach that has been determined to analyze these proteins is to use two, site-directed mutagenesis and electrophysiology. This approach has been improved by nonsense suppression methodology. With this a tethered agonist approach was used to map the agonist binding site of ligand-gated channels. This would provide invaluable information for understanding its response to pharmaceuticals and other chemicals in the human system.
