Urotensin II is the endogenous ligand of a G-protein-coupled orphan receptor, SENR (GPR14).
Two molecular species of urotensin II (UII) were isolated from porcine spinal cords and identified as the endogenous ligands of a G-protein-coupled orphan receptor, SENR (sensory epitheliumExpand

Binding of angiotensin and atrial natriuretic peptide in brain of hypertensive rats
Atrial natriuretic peptides, produced in the mammalian cardiac atrium, are released into the general circulation and may be actively involved in the control of blood pressure and in fluid homeostasisExpand

Increased concentration of angiotensin II binding sites in selected brain areas of spontaneously hypertensive rats.
We studied the density of the angiotensin II (Ang II) binding site in discrete brain nuclei of 4-week-old and 14-week-old spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) and age-matched normotensiveExpand

Increased number of angiotensin II receptors in the subfornical organ of spontaneously hypertensive rats.
Angiotensin II receptors were studied in the brain of spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) and their normotensive controls, Wistar-Kyoto rats (WKY) by quantitative autoradiographic methods coupledExpand

Isolation and primary structure of a novel pheromonotropic neuropeptide structurally related to leucopyrokinin from the armyworm larvae, Pseudaletia separata.
A novel pheromonotropic neuropeptide has been isolated from a head extract of the armyworm larvae, Pseudaletia separata, by a seven step purification procedure using an in vivo assay with decapitatedExpand

Specific binding sites for 125I-endothelin-1 in the porcine and human spinal cord.
Specific binding sites for 125I-endothelin-1 (125I-ET-1) in the spinal cord were investigated using quantitative receptor autoradiographic and chemical cross-linking methods. The binding sites wereExpand

Alteration of atrial natriuretic peptide binding sites in spontaneously hypertensive rats.
Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) binding sites were studied by quantitative autoradiography in young (4-week-old) and adult (14-week-old) spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs) and age-matchedExpand

Increased angiotensin II receptors in brain nuclei of DOCA-salt hypertensive rats.
We analyzed angiotensin II (ANG II) receptors by in vitro autoradiography in selective brain nuclei of control, salt-treated (1% NaCl in drinking water), deoxycorticosterone acetate (DOCA)-treatedExpand

Localization and characterization of atrial natriuretic peptide binding sites in discrete areas of rat brain and pituitary gland by quantitative autoradiography
Atrial natriuretic peptide [rat (r) ANP6-33 or ANP99-126] binding sites were localized in discrete areas of rat brain and pituitary gland using quantitative autoradiographic techniques. High numbersExpand

Atrial natriuretic peptide, ANP(99-126), receptors in rat thymocytes and spleen cells.
A single class of saturable, specific binding sites for the circulating form of atrial natriuretic peptides, ANP(99-126), was identified in rat thymus and spleen and in isolated thymocytes and spleenExpand
