Amylin (Amy) receptors are complexes of the calcitonin receptor with receptor activity-modifying proteins. RAMP1 with the calcitonin receptor forms the AMY(1) receptor; the insert negative isoform of the calcitonin receptor in this complex makes the AMY(1(a)) receptor. This receptor has high affinity for Amy and the related peptide calcitonin gene-related(More)
Amylin is a neuroendocrine hormone involved in glucose regulation. An amylin analog, pramlintide, is used to treat insulin-requiring diabetes. Its anorexigenic actions give it potential as an obesity treatment. There are 3 amylin receptors (AMY1, AMY2, AMY3), comprising the calcitonin receptor and receptor activity-modifying proteins 1, 2, and 3,(More)
Adrenomedullin (AM) is a peptide hormone with numerous effects in the vascular systems. AM signals through the AM1 and AM2 receptors formed by the obligate heterodimerization of a G protein-coupled receptor, the calcitonin receptor-like receptor (CLR), and receptor activity-modifying proteins 2 and 3 (RAMP2 and RAMP3), respectively. These different CLR-RAMP(More)
G protein-coupled receptors are allosteric proteins that control transmission of external signals to regulate cellular response. Although agonist binding promotes canonical G protein signalling transmitted through conformational changes, G protein-coupled receptors also interact with other proteins. These include other G protein-coupled receptors, other(More)
