A screen for protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTPs) expressed in the chick inner ear yielded a high proportion of clones encoding an avian ortholog of protein tyrosine phosphatase receptor Q (Ptprq), a receptor-like PTP. Ptprq was first identified as a transcript upregulated in rat kidney in response to glomerular nephritis and has recently been shown to be(More)
The binding characteristics of corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) type 1 (CRF(1)) and type 2 (CRF(2)) receptors from human (hCRF(1) and hCRF(2alpha)) and Xenopus (xCRF(1) and xCRF(2)) were compared using four different (125)I-labeled CRF analogs, the agonists (125)I-CRF and (125)I-sauvagine, and the antagonists (125)I-astressin ((125)I-AST) and(More)
Many protein-tyrosine phosphatases (PTPases) have now been identified, but little is known about PTPase expression and regulation in vascular tissue and in vascular disease. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification and cDNA fingerprinting of PTPase catalytic domains, combined with random sequencing of PCR product libraries, identified 18 (8(More)
