(Figure Presented) An atomic resolution structure of α2a- adrenoceptor was constructed and 15 known agonists were docked into the optimized model and experimental binding free energies were estimated. The figure shows the binding of the agonist clonidine (sticks) to the core binding pocket of the adrenoceptor (blue cartoon, key residues are marked with sticks).
