Abstract: G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) represent a large
fraction of current pharmaceutical targets, and of the GPCRs, the
2 adrenergic receptor ( 2AR) is one of the most extensively
studied. Previously, the X-ray crystal structure of 2AR has been
determined in complex with two partial inverse agonists, but the
global impact of additional ligands on the structure or local impacts
on the binding site are not well-understood. To assess the extent
of such ligand-induced conformational differences, we determined
