A whole-cell and single-channel study of the voltage-dependent outward potassium current in avian hepatocytes.
(J Gen Physiol, 1988-02)
Voltage-dependent membrane currents were studied in dissociated hepatocytes from chick, using the patch-clamp technique. All cells had voltage-dependent outward K+ currents; in 10% of the cells, a fast, transient, ...
Cyclosporine A inhibits Ca2+-dependent stimulation of the Na+/H+ antiport in human T cells.
(J Cell Biol, 1986-08)
The cyclic undecapeptide cyclosporine A (CsA) is a potent immunosuppressive agent that inhibits the initial activation of T lymphocytes. This agent appears to be most effective in blocking the action of mitogens such as ...
Differential labelling of UDP-N-acetylglucosamine in Huntington's-chorea fibroblasts.
(Biochem J, 1981-05-15)
The hypothesis that there is impaired endogenous synthesis of glucosamine 6-phosphate in Huntington's-chorea fibroblasts was tested by double labelling matched pairs of fibroblasts in culture with carrier-free H3 32PO4 and ...
Beta-agonist- and prostaglandin E1-induced translocation of the beta-adrenergic receptor kinase: evidence that the kinase may act on multiple adenylate cyclase-coupled receptors.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 1986-09)
beta-Adrenergic receptor kinase (beta-AR kinase) is a cytosolic enzyme that phosphorylates the beta-adrenergic receptor only when it is occupied by an agonist [Benovic, J. Strasser, R. H., Caron, M. G. & Lefkowitz, R. J. ...
Cloning and expression of a human kidney cDNA for an alpha 2-adrenergic receptor subtype.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 1988-09)
An alpha 2-adrenergic receptor subtype has been cloned from a human kidney cDNA library using the gene for the human platelet alpha 2-adrenergic receptor as a probe. The deduced amino acid sequence resembles the human platelet ...
Impaired formation of beta-adrenergic receptor-nucleotide regulatory protein complexes in pseudohypoparathyroidism.
(J Clin Invest, 1984-05)
Decreased activity of the guanine nucleotide regulatory protein (N) of the adenylate cyclase system is present in cell membranes of some patients with pseudohypoparathyrodism (PHP-Ia) whereas others have normal activity ...
cDNA for the human beta 2-adrenergic receptor: a protein with multiple membrane-spanning domains and encoded by a gene whose chromosomal location is shared with that of the receptor for platelet-derived growth factor.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 1987-01)
We have isolated and sequenced a cDNA encoding the human beta 2-adrenergic receptor. The deduced amino acid sequence (413 residues) is that of a protein containing seven clusters of hydrophobic amino acids suggestive of ...
Behavioral patterns of Djungarian hamsters: An adaptive profile
(Animal Learning & Behavior, 1984-09)
Functional desensitization of the isolated beta-adrenergic receptor by the beta-adrenergic receptor kinase: potential role of an analog of the retinal protein arrestin (48-kDa protein).
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 1987-12)
The beta-adrenergic receptor kinase is an enzyme, possibly analogous to rhodopsin kinase, that multiply phosphorylates the beta-adrenergic receptor only when it is occupied by stimulatory agonists. Since this kinase may ...
