Corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) is a hypothalamic 41-amino acid peptide which stimulates corticotropin (ACTH) release from the anterior pituitary and is also involved in the body response to stress. CRF1 receptors represent a potential target for novel antidepressant/anxiolytic drugs. The aim of the present study was to search for a human cell line(More)
In this study three major subtypes of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors were characterized pharmacologically using the calcium influx through the ion channel as a robust functional assay system. Human alpha3beta4 receptors and alpha4beta2 receptors were cloned and stably expressed in HEK293 cells. [(125)I]epibatidine saturation binding yielded a B(max) of(More)
