Cell-surface expression and biological functions of several intracellular-retained G protein-coupled receptors are restored by membrane-permeable ligands called pharmacological chaperones. We have previously demonstrated that a mutation of the hydrophobic motif 341FNX2LLX3L350 in the C terminus of the human pituitary vasopressin V3 receptor (MUT V3R) led to(More)
Vasopressin (AVP), the antidiuretic hormone, is a cyclic nonapeptide that acts through binding to G protein-coupled specific membrane receptors pharmacologically divided into three subtypes (V1a, V1b, and V2) linked to distinct second messengers. Within the family of human AVP receptors, the V2 AVP receptor has been cloned, but the structure of the human(More)
The skeletal dysplasia characteristic of acrodysostosis resembles the Albright's hereditary osteodystrophy seen in patients with pseudohypoparathyroidism type 1a, but defects in the α-stimulatory subunit of the G-protein (GNAS), the cause of pseudohypoparathyroidism type 1a, are not present in patients with acrodysostosis. We report a germ-line mutation in(More)
We recently reported the structure and functional expression of a human V1a vasopressin receptor (V1aR) cDNA isolated from human liver cDNA libraries. To understand further the expression and regulation of the V1aR, we now describe the genomic characteristics, tissue expression, chromosomal localization, and regional mapping of the human V1aR gene, AVPR1A.(More)
We cloned by interaction with the beta-subunit of the insulin receptor the rat variant of the human adapter Grb14 (rGrb14). rGrb14 is specifically expressed in rat insulin-sensitive tissues and in the brain. The binding of rGrb14 to insulin receptors is insulin-dependent in vivo in Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells overexpressing both proteins and(More)
Receptor tyrosine kinases play essential roles in cell proliferation and differentiation. We have recently shown that peptides corresponding to the transmembrane domains of the epidermal growth factor (EGF) and ErbB2 receptors inhibit their corresponding receptor activation in cancer cell lines. We extend this observation to cells transfected with chimeric(More)
The isolated perfused rat kidney allows a simultaneous kinetic study of both the renal metabolism and the urinary excretion of cortisol and its metabolites in the rat. In this system, cortisol was completely metabolized within 120 minutes. The main renal metabolites of cortisol (cortisone, 20 reduced cortisol and 20 reduced cortisone) were found in the(More)
Insulin receptor (IR) is a glycoprotein possessing N-linked oligosaccharide side chains on both alpha and beta subunits. The present study focuses for the first time on the potential contribution of N-linked oligosaccharides of the beta subunit in the processing, structure, and function of the insulin receptor. To investigate this point, a receptor mutant(More)
In order to investigate the cardiac effects of antihypertensive therapies in one-clip two-kidney hypertension in rats, we compared the consequences on myosin isoenzyme profile and on left ventricular hypertrophy of two treatments: one was a new converting enzyme inhibitor (S9490), the second a more standard tripletherapy associating clonidine, dihydralazine(More)
