Histamine exerts its numerous physiological functions through interaction with G protein-coupled receptors. Three such receptors have been defined at both the pharmacological and molecular level, while pharmacological evidence hints at the existence of further subtypes. We report here the cloning and characterization of a fourth histamine receptor subtype.(More)
To investigate the molecular phylogenetic status of the Korean goral, Nemorhaedus caudatus raddeanus, and Japanese serow, Capricornis crispus, we determined partial sequences of the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene of twelve Korean gorals and sixteen Japanese serows, and compared them with those of the major lineages of Rupicaprini species including two(More)
