Development of High Affinity Selective VIP1 Receptor Agonists
The biological effects of VIP are mediated by at least two VIP receptors: the VIP1 and the VIP2 receptors that were cloned in rat, human and mice. As the mRNA coding for each receptor are located inExpand

Structural requirements for the occupancy of pituitary adenylate-cyclase-activating-peptide (PACAP) receptors and adenylate cyclase activation in human neuroblastoma NB-OK-1 cell membranes. Discovery
In these structure activity studies, the 46 analogs of the 27-amino-acid form of the pituitary-adenylate-cyclase-activating peptide, PACAP(1-27), and the 38-amino-acid form, PACAP(1-38), were eitherExpand

Fragments of pituitary adenylate cyclase activating polypeptide discriminate between type I and II recombinant receptors.
Pituitary adenylate cyclase activating polypeptide (PACAP) analogues were tested for their ability to occupy the recombinant selective PACAP receptors (PACAP type I receptor) or the non-selectiveExpand

In Vitro Properties of a High Affinity Selective Antagonist of the VIP1 Receptor
A selective high affinity VIP1 receptor antagonist [Acetyl-His1, D-Phe2, Lys15, Arg16, Leu17] VIP(3-7)/GRF(8-27) or PG 97-269 was synthesized, by analogy with recently obtained selective VIP1Expand

Development of selective agonists and antagonists for the human vasoactive intestinal polypeptide VPAC2 receptor
Ro 25-1553 is a cyclic VIP derivative with a high affinity for the VPAC(2) receptor subtype. Our goal was to identify the modifications that support its selectivity for VPAC(2) receptors, and toExpand

Presence of highly selective receptors for PACAP (pituitary adenylate cyclase activating peptide) in membranes from the rat pancreatic acinar cell line AR 4‐2J
We characterized highly selective receptors for PACAP, the pituitary adenylate cyclase activating peptide, in the tumoral acinar cell line AR 4‐2J derived from the rat pancreas. PACAP, a novelExpand

The Long-Acting Vasoactive Intestinal Polypeptide Agonist RO 25-1553 Is Highly Selective of the VIP2 Receptor Subclass
RO 25-1553 is a synthetic VIP analogue that induced a long-lasting relaxation of tracheal and bronchial smooth muscles as well as a reduction of edema and eosinophilic mobilization during pulmonaryExpand

Properties and distribution of receptors for pituitary adenylate cyclase activating peptide (PACAP) in rat brain and spinal cord
A high density (in the pmol/mg protein range) of specific functional receptors for PACAP (pituitary adenylate cyclase activating polypeptide) was observed in membranes from rat brain cortex,Expand

The two forms of the pituitary adenylate cyclase activating polypeptide (PACAP (1–27) and PACAP (1–38)) interact with distinct receptors on rat pancreatic AR 4‐2J cell membranes
The existence of specific receptors for the two PACAPs (Pituirary Adenylate Cyclase Activating Peptides of 27 and 38 amino acids) was previously demonstrated on membranes from the pancreatic acinarExpand
