... and by ‘deorphanisation’ of neuropeptide receptors. The evolutionary origins of at least 30 neuropeptide signalling systems have been traced to the common ancestor of protostomes and deuterostomes. Furthermore, two rounds of genome duplication gave rise to an expanded repertoire of neuropeptide signalling systems...

... affinity to the receptor that is comparable (7.6-fold less) to that of non-labeled speract. Indeed, 10 nmol l −1 eCFP-speract induces physiological sperm responses such as membrane potential changes and increases in intracellular pH and Ca 2+ concentrations similar to those triggered by 10 nmol l −1...

In support of this, we found expression of a phospholipase C and an inositol trisphosphate receptor in the rhinophore sensory epithelia and possibly distributed within outer dendrites of olfactory sensory...

...Cécile Faucher; Manfred Forstreuter; Monika Hilker; Marien de Bruyne SUMMARY Drosophila melanogaster (Meigen) detects and uses many volatiles for its survival. Carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) is detected in adults by a special class of olfactory receptor neurons, expressing the gustatory receptor Gr21a...

... Manduca and the cricket Acheta ,functional studies have shown that its cognate receptor (DH-R) is related to the mammalian CRF receptor. The Drosophila genome contains two genes( CG8422 and CG1237 0) orthologous to Manduca and Acheta DH-Rs. Here, we present multiple lines of evidence to support...

Feeding on solanaceous foliage therefore appears to result in a modification of the physiological responses of individual taste receptor cells that causes them to be tuned to the host-recognition cue indioside D. We propose that this tuning...

Using behavioural experiments in the field and in the laboratory, we show that the beetle is able to roll along a straight path by using the polarised light pattern of evening skylight. The receptors used to detect...

In order to determine if receptors for ET are expressed in fish gill tissue, we examined the binding kinetics of 125 I-labeled, human ET-1 to membrane fragments isolated from the gill of the dogfish shark, Squalus acanthias . 125 I-ET-1 bound at a single site, with a dissociation constant ( K d...

Receptor-mediated internalization and the survival and maintenance function of NGF are mediated by the higher affinity receptors. These receptors have...
