We have previously reported that antipeptide antibodies directed against the second extracellular loop of the cardiac h5-HT4 receptor could block the activation of the L-type Ca channel in human atrial cardiomyocytes. In this paper we investigate the immunological and physiological activity of these antibodies, in a cell system expressing a larger amount of(More)
5-hydroxytryptamine-4 (5-HT(4)) receptors have been proposed to contribute to the generation of atrial fibrillation in human atrial myocytes, but it is unclear if these receptors are present in the hearts of small laboratory animals (e.g. rat). In this study, we examined presence and functionality of 5-HT(4) receptors in auricular myocytes of newborn rats(More)
In human atrial myocytes, serotonin rather than sympathetic, stimulation is more frequently associated with atrial fibrillation. So does the arrhythmogenic effect of serotonin result from the mechanism of action of the receptor or the context of its action upon cardiac myocytes? The capacity of agonists to produce cAMP followed the sequence 5-HT < Iso <(More)
The lutropin receptor consists of an extracellular N-terminal half and a membrane-associated C-terminal half. hCG initially binds the exodomain with a high affinity and the resulting complex is thought to interact with the endodomain through a secondary contact generating a hormonal signal. Therefore, the exodomain and endodomain are likely to associate(More)
The functional effects of the anti-G21V antibody directed against the second extracellular loop of human heart 5-HT(4) receptors can differ when the receptors are expressed in different cell lines. Here, we extend these studies to show variation in the responses of 5-HT(4(g)) receptors to the antibody within the same expression system. In a previous report(More)
The initial objective of this work was to examine the effects of an antibody (Anti-G21V) directed against the second extracellular loop of human heart 5-HT4 receptors expressed in Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells. The antibody anti-G21V had no effect upon either basal cAMP-or 5-HT-evoked increases in cAMP in CHO cells, whereas it had shown an agonist-like(More)
