Two parent clones of a gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB) receptor, C12K32 and GHBh1, were isolated from a human frontal cortex cDNA library. The two clones differ by a deleted cytosine in C12K32. CHO cells transfected with either C12K32 or GHBh1 responded positively to submicromolar GHB stimulation. However, unlike C12K32, GHBh1 desensitizes rapidly on application of low concentrations of GHB. GHB receptor properties were then studied on C12K32 expressed in CHO cells. C12K32 bound GHB with a Kd of… CONTINUE READING
