  • In the lab, Weiss found that the African-specific receptor, called DARC, or duffy antigen receptor for chemokines, also interacted with HIV: the receptor binds to a wide array of .
  • The receptor array is massively complex, with at least 40 sites known to play a role in carrying feelings of hunger or satiation and 30 more that probably do.
  • Antiandrogen drugs, like bicalutamide, work by binding to the androgen receptors on prostate-cancer cells, chemically preventing the hormones from interacting with the tumor.
