The α-mating pheromone receptor encoded by the STE2 gene of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is a G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) that is homologous to the large family of GPCRs that mediate multiple types of signal transduction in mammals. We have screened libraries of mutant receptors to identify dominant negative alleles that are capable of(More)
Evaluation of the emergency department patient with acute abdominal pain is sometimes difficult. Various factors can obscure the presentation, delaying or preventing the correct diagnosis, with subsequent adverse patient outcomes. Clinicians must consider multiple diagnoses, especially those life-threatening conditions that require timely intervention to(More)
Gamma-glutamyl hydrolase (GH) plays an important role in the metabolism of folic acid and the pharmacology of antifolates such as methotrexate. We have previously cloned and characterized the human GH cDNA. In this report, the complete organization and structure of the human GH gene was determined. The human GH gene spans 24 kb in the human genome, with(More)
