Expression, assembly and function of novel C‐terminal truncated variants of the mouse P2X7 receptor: re‐evaluation of P2X7 knockouts
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Splice variants of P2X7 receptor transcripts contribute to the diversity of receptor‐mediated responses. Here, we investigated expression and function of C‐terminal truncatedExpand

Splice variants of the P2X7 receptor reveal differential agonist dependence and functional coupling with pannexin-1
Summary P2X7 receptors function as ATP-gated cation channels but also interact with other proteins as part of a larger signalling complex to mediate a variety of downstream responses that areExpand

P2X4 receptors interact with both P2X2 and P2X7 receptors in the form of homotrimers
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The P2X receptor family consists of seven subunit types – P2X1–P2X7. All but P2X6 are able to assemble as homotrimers. In addition, various subunit permutations have beenExpand

A cryptic melibiose transporter gene possessing a frameshift from Citrobacter freundii.
Wild-type Citrobacter freundii cannot grow on melibiose as a sole source of carbon. The melibiose transporter gene melB was cloned from a C. freundii mutant M4 that could utilize melibiose as a soleExpand
