A cDNA encoding a G protein-coupled receptor of unknown ligand specificity was isolated from a human hippocampal cDNA library by virtue of the high degree of structural homology between members of this receptor family. The cloned receptor DNA was transfected into human embryonic kidney 293 cells. Stably transfected cell lines bound a variety of adenosine(More)
Dequalinium has recently been reported to block CNGA1 and CNGA2 channels expressed in Xenopus laevis. Using the inside-out configuration of the patch-clamp technique, we examined the effects of dequalinium on rat olfactory CNGA2 channels expressed in human embryonic kidney (HEK293) cells and studied aspects of its molecular mechanism of action. We found(More)
