The human (h) follicle-stimulating hormone receptor (FSHR) belongs to the superfamily of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). This receptor consists of 695 amino acid residues and is preferentially coupled to the G(s) protein. This receptor is highly conserved among species (overall homology, 85%), with a 25-69% homology drop when compared to the human LH(More)
The carboxyl-terminal segment of G protein-coupled receptors has one or more conserved cysteine residues that are potential sites for palmitoylation. This posttranslational modification contributes to membrane association, internalization, and membrane targeting of proteins. In contrast to other members of the glycoprotein hormone receptor family (the LH(More)
In the present study, we analyzed human follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH)-induced cell proliferation and transactivation of estrogen-sensitive reporter genes-in L cells stably expressing the human FSH receptor [L-(hFSHR(+)) cells]. In order to dissect the signaling pathways involved in this process, L-(hFSHR(+)) cells were transiently transfected with(More)
