Human urothelial cell lines as potential models for studying cannabinoid and excitatory receptor interactions in the urinary bladder

Abstract

To characterize human urothelial cell lines’ cannabinoid receptor expression and evaluate their possible use for studying signalling interactions with purinergic and muscarinic receptor activation. PCR was used to detect cannabinoid (CB), muscarinic and purinergic receptor transcripts in HCV29 and UROtsa cells, whilst immunofluorescence evaluated protein… (More)
