G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) are ancient molecules that can sense environmental and physiological signals. Currently, the majority of the predicted Caenorhabditis elegans GPCRs are orphan. Here, we describe the characterization of such an orphan C. elegans GPCR, which is categorized in the tachykinin-like group of receptors. Since the C. elegans(More)
Anaplastic thyroid cancer represents one of the most aggressive cancers. The active form of vitamin D, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D(3) (1,25(OH)(2)D(3)), has been shown to have antiproliferative and/or redifferentiating properties in several malignancies, including thyroid cancer. The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of 1,25(OH)(2)D(3) and(More)
