Cloning and quantification of galanin-1 receptor expression by mucosal cells lining the human gastrointestinal tract.

Abstract

Recent studies suggest that galanin receptors may be expressed by mucosal epithelial cells lining the GI tract and play a role in regulating ion transport. However, no information exists as to which receptor subtype is expressed by these mucosal cells, or the relative distribution of such receptors within the GI tract. In this study we cloned the human… (More)
