Abstract Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a member of the neurotrophin family, plays an important role in synaptic plasticity. In this issue of Molecular Pharmacology , Ou and Gean (p. 350) thoroughly describe the molecular cascade by which fear learning leads to an increase in BDNF...
Abstract We have demonstrated previously that brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) signaling in the amygdala is required for the consolidation of fear memory. This study is designed to characterize the signal cascades by which fear conditioning modulates transcriptional and translational...
Abstract Recycling of G protein-coupled receptors determines the functional resensitization of receptors and is implicated in switching β 2 adrenoceptor (β 2 AR) G protein specificity in cardiomyocytes. The human β 2 AR carboxyl end binds to the N -ethylmaleimide-sensitive factor (NSF), an...
Abstract THRX-160209 is a potent antagonist at the M 2 muscarinic acetylcholine (ACh) receptor subtype that was designed using a multivalent strategy, simultaneously targeting the orthosteric site and a nearby site known to bind allosteric ligands. In this report, we describe three...
Abstract Frequent coffee consumption has been associated with a reduced risk of colorectal cancer in a number of case-control studies. Coffee is a leading source of methylxanthines, such as caffeine. The induction of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and interleukin-8 (IL-8) is an...
Abstract The structurally unique amino-terminal domain of class II G protein-coupled receptors is critically important for ligand binding and receptor activation. Understanding the precise role it plays requires detailed insights into the molecular basis of its ligand interactions and the...
Abstract Using a high-throughput functional screen, the atypical L-type Ca 2+ channel blocker diltiazem was discovered to be an agonist at the human ghrelin (GHSR1a) receptor. In cellular proliferation, Ca 2+ mobilization, and bioluminescence resonance energy transfer (BRET-2) assays, diltiazem...
Abstract N , N -Dimethyl- d - erythro -sphingosine (DMS) competitively inhibits sphingosine kinase (SPHK) and has been widely used to assess the role of SPHK during cellular events, including motility, proliferation, and differentiation. In the present study, the effect of DMS on the...
Abstract Glucuronidation is a major hepatic detoxification pathway for endogenous and exogenous compounds, resulting in the intracellular formation of polar metabolites that require specialized transporters for elimination. Multidrug resistance proteins (MRPs) are expressed in the liver and can...
Abstract Erlotinib, a small-molecule epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitor, has been shown to have potent antitumor effects against human non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cell growth; however, the mechanism of such an effect is not elucidated. Here, we demonstrate...
