A truncated form of the P2xR1 purinoceptor subunit (which we designate P2xR1-2) was detected in rat pituitary gland and the secretory epithelial tissue (stria vascularis) of the cochlea using RT-PCR of solid-phase cDNA libraries. PCR products corresponding to the P2xR1 purinoceptor subunit (1) were obtained from vas deferens, brain and microdissected cochlear sensory epithelial tissues including organ of Corti, sacculus and crista ampullaris. Cloning and sequencing revealed that the P2xR1-2… CONTINUE READING
