The cholecystokinin (CCK) family of peptides and receptors are present throughout the brain and gastrointestinal tract and can be pharmacologically subdivided into two subtypes: CCKA and CCKB. Little is known about the localization, pharmacology and function of CCKA receptors (CCKAR) in humans. We used the rat CCKAR cDNA to isolate the human CCK receptor… CONTINUE READING
