Insulin-like peptide 3 (INSL3) binds to a G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) called relaxin family peptide receptor 2 (RXFP2). RXFP2 belongs to the leucine-rich repeat-containing subgroup (LGR) of class A GPCRs. Negative cooperativity has recently been demonstrated in other members of the LGR subgroup. In this work, the kinetics of INSL3 binding to HEK293(More)
H2 relaxin, a member of the insulin superfamily, binds to the G-protein-coupled receptor RXFP1 (relaxin family peptide 1), a receptor that belongs to the leucine-rich repeat (LRR)-containing subgroup (LGRs) of class A GPCRs. We recently demonstrated negative cooperativity in INSL3 binding to RXFP2 and showed that this subgroup of GPCRs functions as(More)
Liraglutide is a human glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) analogue approved for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. It is based on human GLP-1 with the addition of a 16-carbon fatty acid, which facilitates binding to plasma proteins, thus prolonging the elimination half-life and allowing once-daily administration. It has not been possible to quantify liraglutide(More)
The biologic fate of the [(3)H]PEG-moiety incorporated into N8-GP was evaluated based on single i.v. bolus doses to rats. Furthermore, the 40kDa [(3)H]PEG-moiety was given separately to rats by single i.v. bolus doses, to investigate if the pharmacokinetics were dose-dependent. For both compounds, plasma pharmacokinetics, distribution and excretion pathways(More)
Lipid accumulation in non-adipose tissues is strongly associated with the metabolic syndrome, possibly due to aberrant partitioning of intracellular fatty acids between storage and oxidation. In the present study, we administered the non-metabolizable fatty acid analog [9,10-(3)H]-(R)-2-bromopalmitate, and authentic (14)C-palmitate to conscious rats, in(More)
Activated factor VII blocked in the active site with Phe-Phe-Arg-chloromethyl ketone (active site inhibited factor VII (ASIS)) is a 50-kDa protein that binds with high affinity to its receptor, tissue factor (TF). TF is a transmembrane glycoprotein that plays an important role in, for example, thrombosis, metastasis, tumor growth, and tumor angiogenesis.(More)
