Conserved features of the sequences of dopamine receptors and of homologous G-protein-coupled receptors point to regions, and amino acid residues within these regions, that contribute to their ligand binding sites. Differences in binding specificities among the catecholamine receptors, however, must stem from their nonconserved residues. Using the(More)

Existence of encapsulated glands situated in the mesentery of certain teleosti was reported by Brockmann (1846) and Stannius (1848), respectively. Thus the gland was named stannius corpuscle or Brockmann body. Later, as results of histological study, cells of stannius corpuscle tissues were constituted with Langerhans islet cells observed in mammalian(More)
The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-encoded oncoprotein latent membrane protein 1 (LMP1) has an essential role in B-lymphocyte transformation by the virus and is expressed in certain EBV-associated tumors and lymphoproliferative disorders. By using the Flp-In/TREx-inducible expression system, we introduced LMP1 into two human cell lines, Jurkat and HEK-293, and(More)
