Subtype- and species-selectivity of a tachykinin receptor antagonist, FK888, for cloned rat and human tachykinin receptors.

We investigated the receptor-binding properties and potencies of FK888 (N2-[(4R)-4-hydroxy-1-(1-methyl-1H-indol-3-yl)carbonyl-L-prolyl]-N- phenylmethyl-3-(2-naphthyl)-L-alaninamide), a tachykinin receptor antagonist, for the rat and human tachykinin receptor subtypes (NK1, NK2 and NK3) expressed in transfected mammalian cells. In displacement analyses… CONTINUE READING
