|20110172153||SCREENING METHODS USING G-PROTEIN COUPLED RECEPTORS AND RELATED COMPOSITIONS - The present invention provides screening methods for GPCRs based on the discovery that the affinity of a receptor agonist for a GPCR (such as the parathyroid hormone receptor) when not bound to a G-protein is correlated with the length of time over which the agonist is effective, independently of its pharmacokinetic properties. The invention also provides PTH- and PTHrP-derived polypeptides.||07-14-2011|
