Ow and colleagues succeeded in slipping hmt1 into tobacco, a potential candidate for bioaccumulation chores.
Says Ow, "Tobacco apparently reads some signals within hmt1 as stop signs." To sidestep the problem, the researchers have streamlined the gene.
The goal of this project was to determine the affinity of ramelteon for competition to 2-[125I]iodomelatonin binding to the super high and high affinity states of the hMT1 and hMT2 melatonin receptors stably expressed in Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) (Mol Pharmacol 50:166, 1996).
