(Tokyo, Japan) has patented a full-length cDNA encoding a human-derived G protein-coupled receptor protein
is isolated by screening a human hippocampus library.
Mice fed bacteria-containing broth had higher levels of the GABA receptor protein
in some parts of the brain and lower levels in other parts than did mice fed sterile broth.
(Cambridge, MA) has patented nucleotides that encode Ob receptor (ObR), a receptor protein
that participates in mammalian body weight regulation.
In a study, the team described how they solved the 3D structure of a receptor protein
called PqsR used by P.
Princeton University (Princeton, NJ) has patented isolated mammalian nucleic acid molecules encoding receptor protein
tyrosine kinases expressed in primitive hematopoietic cells and not expressed in mature hematopoietic cells.
Also included is the use of the model to identify compounds that inhibit the binding of an antibody receptor protein
to an antibody.
A critical discovery in this research was finding that the novel progenitor has a receptor protein
on its cell surface called KDR, or vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2, which until now, was thought to be restricted to endothelial cells that form vessels, the progenitors for endothelial cells and the progenitors blood cells.
A receptor protein
that shows up on cancerous colon cells might serve as a new target for scientists seeking to derail this malignancy.
In vitro, they found that ablation of the receptor protein
in breast cancer cells led to a decrease in cancer cell proliferation, migration and invasion.
As a receptor protein
, PAR1 signals its cell when bound by a molecule that fits it.
Called p75NTR, this receptor protein
is usually associated with functions in neurons.
