Reverse physiology in Drosophila: identification of a novel allatostatin‐like neuropeptide and its cognate receptor structurally related to the mammalian somatostatin/galanin/opioid receptor family
By using degenerate oligonucleotide primers deduced from the conserved regions of the mammalian somatostatin receptors, a novel G‐protein‐coupled receptor from Drosophila melanogaster has beenExpand

Somatostatin Receptor Interacting Protein Defines a Novel Family of Multidomain Proteins Present in Human and Rodent Brain*
By using the yeast two-hybrid system we identified a novel protein from the human brain interacting with the C terminus of somatostatin receptor subtype 2. This protein termed somatostatin receptorExpand

Identification of a cis-Acting Dendritic Targeting Element in MAP2 mRNAs
In neurons, a limited number of mRNAs have been identified in dendritic processes, whereas other transcripts are restricted to the cell soma. Here we have investigated the molecular mechanismsExpand

Formation and reversion of stress induced martensite in Ti-10V-2Fe-3Al
Abstract The formation and reversion behavior of stress induced orthorhombic martensite (α″) in Ti-10V-2Fe-3Al has been studied, and several interesting features found. Reversion appears to takeExpand

Identification of melanin concentrating hormone (MCH) as the natural ligand for the orphan somatostatin‐like receptor 1 (SLC‐1)
To identify possible ligands of the orphan somatostatin‐like receptor 1 (SLC‐1), rat brain extracts were analyzed by using the functional expression system of Xenopus oocytes injected with cRNAsExpand

Cloning and sequence analysis of cDNA for corticotropin-releasing factor precursor from the teleost fish Catostomus commersoni.
The sequence of a cDNA encoding the corticotropin-releasing factor precursor has been identified by screening lambda gt11 libraries constructed from poly(A)+ RNA of the hypothalamic region of theExpand

Phosphorylation of Four Amino Acid Residues in the Carboxyl Terminus of the Rat Somatostatin Receptor Subtype 3 Is Crucial for Its Desensitization and Internalization*
Agonist-dependent internalization of the rat somatostatin receptor subtype 3 (SSTR3) requires four hydroxyl amino acids (Ser341, Ser346, Ser351, and Thr357) in the receptor C terminus (Roth, A.,Expand

Molecular cloning of a novel putative G‐protein coupled receptor expressed during rat spermiogenesis
A cDNA clone encoding a novel putative G‐protein coupled receptor has been isolated from a rat testis cDNA library using a PCR‐amplified cDNA fragment as a hybridization probe. Northern blot analysisExpand

Axonal transport of neuropeptide encoding mRNAs within the hypothalamo‐hypophyseal tract of rats.
Hypothalamic vasopressin and oxytocin transcripts have been detected in the posterior pituitary suggesting either transcription of the respective genes in pituicytes or axonal mRNA transport from theExpand

A novel rat serotonin receptor: primary structure, pharmacology, and expression pattern in distinct brain regions.
Serotonin mediates various central and peripheral functions by its ability to bind to and activate a variety of receptors that belong to four pharmacologically defined classes termed 5-HT1 to 5-HT4.Expand
