- 5 novel GPR55 peptide ligands as reported by Foster et al. (2019): Ligand IDs 10539-10543
- A new group of ligands, PROTACs and molecular glues, has been curated, with targets including kinases, tau protein and the chromatin modifying proteins BRD4, BRD9 and TRIM24
Ligand list download
- A new download button has been added to the ligand list pages. This enables users to download the specific ligand set they are viewingfor downloading specific sets of ligands (see image below).
- The IUPHAR/MMV Guide to Malaria Pharmacology now includes direct links from targets to PlasmoDB. The detailed target pages now clearly display the PlasmoDB accession for the target. The links are also included in the summary view of the target.
