Heterogeneity in the third intracytoplasmic region of the oxytocin receptor-encoding gene.

Abstract

The oxytocin receptor (OTR), a member of the seven-transmembrane domain guanine-nucleotide-binding protein (G protein) coupled receptor family plays a central role in lactation, ovarian cyclicity and reproductive behaviour. Recent cloning and sequencing unexpectedly revealed that the third intracytoplasmic region (3ICR) of the sheep receptor has 3 and 2… (More)
