Corticotropin - releasing hormone receptor 1 (CRHR1) forms an integral part of the pathophysiology of disorders like post-traumatic stress disorder, stress, anxiety, addiction, and depression. Hence it is essential to look for new, potent and structure-specific inhibitors of CRHR1. We have analysed the protein-protein interaction complexes of the CRHR1 receptor with its native ligand CRF and full agonist Sauvagine. The structure of Sauvagine was predicted using homology modelling. We have identified that the residues TYR253, ASP254, GLU256, GLY265, ARG1014 and LY1060 are important in the formation of protein-protein complex formation. Future studies on these residues could throw light on the crucial structural features required for the formation of CRHR1-inhibitor complex and in studies that try to solve the structural complexities of CRHR1.
