Scientists working at the Berkeley Center for Structural Biology in the Advanced Light Source (ALS) recently solved the crystallographic structures of several amine transporters in an effort to better understand why the human brain responds to chemicals like dopamine and serotonin. Their findings will help design drugs to treat neurological diseases and may also lead to a better understanding of how drug addiction can be managed. The work was led by HHMI Investigator Eric Gouaux of the Oregon Health & Science University. Read more in the ALS Science Highlight.
