The P2X(7) receptor from Xenopus laevis: formation of a large pore in Xenopus oocytes.

Abstract

The purinergic P2X(7) receptor is an ATP-receptor channel predominantly expressed in immune cells. P2X(7) has been cloned from human, rat and mouse. Here we report cloning of the Xenopus laevis P2X(7) receptor (xP2X(7)). xP2X(7) is only about 50% identical to the mammalian homologues, shows a broad tissue expression pattern, and has the electrophysiological… (More)
