Neurotensin and neurotensin receptors.
Neurotensin is a brain and gastrointestinal peptide that fulfils many central and peripheral functions through its interaction with specific receptors. Three subtypes of neurotensin receptors haveExpand

The 100-kDa Neurotensin Receptor Is gp95/Sortilin, A Non-G-Protein-coupled Receptor*
In this work, the 100-kDa neurotensin (NT) receptor previously purified from human brain by affinity chromatography (Zsürger, N., Mazella, J., and Vincent, J. P. (1994) Brain Res. 639, 245–252) wasExpand

Structure, Functional Expression, and Cerebral Localization of the Levocabastine-Sensitive Neurotensin/Neuromedin N Receptor from Mouse Brain
This work describes the cloning and expression of the levocabastine-sensitive neurotensin (NT) receptor from mouse brain. The receptor protein comprises 417 amino acids and bears the characteristicsExpand

Involvement of the Neurotensin Receptor-3 in the Neurotensin-Induced Migration of Human Microglia
Microglia motility plays a crucial role in response to lesion or exocytotoxic damage of the cerebral tissue. We used two in vitro assays, a wound-healing model and a chemotaxis assay, to show thatExpand

Localization of the Somatostatin Receptor SST2A in Rat Brain Using a Specific Anti-Peptide Antibody
Biological actions of somatostatin are exerted via a family of receptors, for which five genes recently have been cloned. However, none of these receptor proteins has been visualized yet in theExpand

Contulakin-G, an O-Glycosylated Invertebrate Neurotensin*
We have purified contulakin-G, a 16-amino acid O-linked glycopeptide (pGlu-Ser-Glu-Glu-Gly-Gly-Ser-Asn-Ala-Thr-Lys-Lys-Pro-Tyr-Ile-Leu-OH, pGlu is pyroglutamate) from Conus geographus venom. TheExpand

Identification of the Receptor Subtype Involved in the Analgesic Effect of Neurotensin
The neuropeptide neurotensin (NT) elicits hypothermic and naloxone-insensitive analgesic responses after brain injection. Recent pharmacological evidence obtained with NT agonists and antagonistsExpand

Distribution of NTS3 receptor/sortilin mRNA and protein in the rat central nervous system
The neurotensin (NT) receptor, NTS3, originally identified as the intracellular sorting protein sortilin, is a member of a recently discovered family of receptors characterized by a singleExpand

Mutagenesis and Modeling of the Neurotensin Receptor NTR1
The two neurotensin receptor subtypes known to date, NTR1 and NTR2, belong to the family of G-protein-coupled receptors with seven putative transmembrane domains (TM). SR 48692, a nonpeptideExpand

Somatostatin-Induced Regulation of SST2A Receptor Expression and Cell Surface Availability in Central Neurons: Role of Receptor Internalization
To investigate the effects of somatostatin (somatotropin release-inhibiting factor, SRIF) on the regulation of SST2A receptors in mammalian brain, we examined how blockade of SRIF release orExpand
