Clones encoding a new human P2Y receptor, provisionally called P2Y11, have been isolated from human placenta complementary DNA and genomic DNA libraries. The 1113-base pair open reading frame is interrupted by one intron. The P2Y11 receptor is characterized by considerably larger second and third extracellular loops than the subtypes described so far. The(More)
We have cloned and expressed a novel human G-protein-coupled receptor closely related to the human P2Y(12) receptor. It corresponds to the orphan receptor called GPR86. GPR86 proved to be a G(i)-coupled receptor displaying a high affinity for ADP, similar to the P2Y(12) receptor and can therefore be tentatively called P2Y(13). In 1321N1 cells, the P2Y(13)(More)
1 The human P2Y11 receptor is coupled to both the phosphoinositide and the cyclic AMP pathways. A pharmacological characterization of the recombinant human P2Y11 receptor has been conducted following stable expression in two different cell lines: the 1321N1 astrocytoma cells for inositol trisphosphate measurements and the CHO-K1 cells for cyclic AMP assays.(More)
In order to isolate new subtypes of P2 purinoceptors, sets of degenerate oligonucleotide primers were synthesized on the basis of the best conserved segments in the published sequences of the chick brain P2Y/P2Y1 and murine neuroblastoma P2U/P2Y2 receptors. Their use in polymerase chain reaction (PCR) experiments on human genomic DNA amplified, among other(More)
Nucleotides are ubiquitous intercellular messengers whose actions are mediated by specific receptors. Since the first clonings in 1993, it is known that nucleotide receptors belong to two families: the ionotropic P2X receptors and the metabotropic P2Y receptors. Five human P2Y receptor subtypes have been cloned so far and a sixth one must still be isolated.(More)
In order to isolate new subtypes of P2Y purinoceptors, a human placenta cDNA library was screened at middle stringency with a P2Y4 probe. The purification and the sequencing of several clones led us to identify a 984 base pair open reading frame encoding a new human P2Y receptor. It appeared later that this sequence corresponds to the human ortholog (88%(More)
The P2Y6 receptor is a recently cloned P2 receptor which displays a high sensitivity for diphosphonucleotides. In 1321N1 astrocytoma cells stably expressing this receptor, UDP induced a slow and sustained accumulation of inositol trisphosphate via a pertussis toxin-insensitive G-protein: the maximal level was only reached after 15 min and a significant(More)
The P2Y(11) receptor is an ATP receptor positively coupled to the cAMP and phosphoinositide pathways. Ssf1 is a Saccharomyces cerevisiae nuclear protein, which plays an important role in mating. The gene encoding the human orthologue of SSF1 is adjacent to the P2Y(11) gene on chromosome 19. During the screening of placenta cDNA libraries, we isolated a(More)
The P2Y4 receptor is a new member of the P2Y family which functionally behaves as a pyrimidinergic receptor. The pharmacological properties of the human P2Y4 receptor have been characterized following its stable expression in 1321N1 astrocytoma cells. UTP induced a biphasic accumulation of inositol trisphosphates, with an early peak at 30 s followed by a(More)
To isolate the mouse P2Y4 receptor gene, a mouse genomic library was screened with a human P2Y4 probe. An open reading frame encoding a protein of 361 amino acids was isolated. This protein showed 82% and 95% amino acid identity with the human and rat P2Y4 receptors, respectively. By reverse transcription and polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), the P2Y4(More)
