Histamine H2 receptors transfected in Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells are time- and dose-dependently upregulated upon exposure to the H2 antagonists cimetidine and ranitidine. This effect appears to be H2 receptor-mediated as no change in receptor density was observed after H1 or H3 antagonist treatment or after incubation with the structural analogue of(More)
Pretreatment of Chinese hamster ovary cells expressing the histamine H2 receptor (CHOrH2 cells) with histamine resulted in a time-dependent (t1/2 approximately 7 h) and dose-dependent (EC50=18 nM) H2 receptor down-regulation measured as [125I]iodoaminopotentidine binding (44+/-10% down-regulation). Pretreatment of CHOrH2 cells with cholera toxin or(More)
The LIM homeodomain transcription factor 1b (Lmx1b) is a key factor in the specification of the serotonergic neurotransmitter phenotype. Here, we explored the capacity of Lmx1b to direct differentiation of mouse embryonic stem (mES) cells into serotonergic neurons. mES cells stably expressing human Lmx1b were generated by lentiviral vector infection.
