Functional, endogenously expressed corticotropin-releasing factor receptor type 1 (CRF1) and CRF1 receptor mRNA expression in human neuroblastoma SH-SY5Y cells.

Abstract

Corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) is a hypothalamic 41-amino acid peptide which stimulates corticotropin (ACTH) release from the anterior pituitary and is also involved in the body response to stress. CRF1 receptors represent a potential target for novel antidepressant/anxiolytic drugs. The aim of the present study was to search for a human cell line… (More)
