gastrin-releasing peptide receptor
Molecular Imaging of Prostate Cancer.
Zürich, Switzerland. In Radiographics, Jan 2016
The androgen receptor, prostate-specific membrane antigen, and gastrin-releasing peptide receptor (ie, bombesin) are overexpressed in prostate cancer and can be targeted by specific radiolabeled imaging probes.
Mediators of Chronic Pruritus in Atopic Dermatitis: Getting the Itch Out?
Philadelphia, United States. In Clin Rev Allergy Immunol, Jun 2015
Various receptors (TRPA1, TRPV1, PAR2, gastrin-releasing peptide receptor (GRPR), Mas-related G proteins), secreted molecules (histamine, nerve growth factor (NGF), substance P (SP), proteases), and cytokines/chemokines (thymic stromal lymphopoietin (TSLP), IL-2, IL-4, IL-13, and IL-31) are implicated as mediators of chronic pruritus.
Cellular basis of itch sensation.
Saint Louis, United States. In Science, 2009
Although our previous study suggested that gastrin-releasing peptide receptor (GRPR) is an itch-specific gene in the spinal cord, a long-standing question of whether there are separate neuronal pathways for itch and pain remains unsettled.
