Molecular cloning and functional analysis of a novel P2 nucleotide receptor.

Abstract

The cDNA encoding a novel P2 receptor was isolated from rat aortic smooth muscle cell library and functionally characterized. The cloned P2 receptor exhibits structural features characteristic of the G protein-coupled receptor family and shows 44 and 38% amino acid identity with previously cloned rat P2U and chicken P2Y receptors, respectively. The cloned… (More)
