Identification and characterization of a second melanin-concentrating hormone receptor, MCH-2R
Melanin-concentrating hormone (MCH) is a 19-aa cyclic neuropeptide originally isolated from chum salmon pituitaries. Besides its effects on the aggregation of melanophores in fish several lines ofExpand

Characterization of the bombesin-like peptide receptor family in primates.
In mammals, bombesin-like peptides mediate a broad range of physiological functions through binding to three highly conserved G-protein-coupled receptors: the neuromedin B-preferring, theExpand

Melanin-concentrating hormone receptor subtypes 1 and 2: species-specific gene expression.
To assess the contribution of potential central nervous system pathways implicated in the control of appetite regulation and energy metabolism, it is essential to first identify appropriate animalExpand

Molecular cloning and structural characterization of the human histidase gene (HAL).
Histidase (EC 4.3.1.3) is a cytosolic enzyme that catalyzes the nonoxidative deamination of histidine to urocanic acid. Histidinemia, resulting from reduced histidase activity as reported inExpand
