    The human formyl peptide receptor (FPR) plays an important role in inflammation and immunity. Finding of specific agonists and antagonists of FPR may provide potential therapeutic agents for FPR related disorders. The binding of agonist by FPR induces a cascade of G protein-mediated signaling...
