These slides are intended for a class covering insights gained from structural analysis of the regulation of receptor tyrosine kinases and is part of the course “Cell Signaling Systems: A Course for Graduate Students”. The lecture begins with an overview of the many protein domains thus far implicated in cell signaling and then describes in detail the phosphotyrosine-binding domain (PTB). The application of structural information to rational drug design by targeting protein interaction domains is also covered.
