Urotensin-II (U-II) is a vasoactive 'somatostatin-like' cyclic peptide which was originally isolated from fish spinal cords, and which has recently been cloned from man. Here we describe the identification of an orphan human G-protein-coupled receptor homologous to rat GPR14 and expressed predominantly in cardiovascular tissue, which functions as a U-II(More)
Kinetic analyses of the irreversible inhibition of L-tyrosine and L-phenylalanine transport in Bacillus subtilis by phenylalanine chloromethyl ketone revealed that the inhibition was due to an affinity labeling process. Phenylalanine chloromethyl ketone is a competetive inhibitor of L-tyrosine and L-phenylalanine transport. The K, values for irreversible(More)
