The alpha T3-1 cell line, an immortalized gonadotroph cell line, expresses high levels of the gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH) receptor. Sustained exposure of these cells to the GnRH receptor agonist des-Gly10-[D-Ala6]luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone ethylamide resulted in a substantial down-regulation of cellular levels of a combination of the alpha subunits of the phospholipase C-beta 1-linked G proteins Gq and G11, as assessed by immunoblotting with an antiserum able to identify… CONTINUE READING
