Effects of ATP and NGF on Proliferation and Migration of Neural Precursor Cells.
São Paulo, Brazil. In Neurochem Res, Sep 2015
Gene expression of P2X2-7 and P2Y1,2,4,6,12,14 receptors was confirmed in undifferentiated and neural-differentiated neurospheres, with an up-regulation of P2X2 and P2X6 subtypes, together with a down-regulation of P2X4, P2X7 and P2Y subtypes upon induction to differentiation.
P2X receptors and inflammation.
Ferrara, Italy. In Curr Med Chem, 2014
While this is justified to a certain extent for P2X1, P2X2, P2X3, P2X5 and P2X6, which still await identification of a convincing role in the pathophysiology of immune cells, it is clearly not any more the case for P2X4 and even more so for P2X7, a molecule that has achieved the status of an essential, nonredundant, immunomodulatory receptor.
Go it alone no more--P2X7 joins the society of heteromeric ATP-gated receptor channels.
Cleveland, United States. In Mol Pharmacol, 2007
Current genetic, biochemical, and/or physiological evidence indicates that the extended family of functional P2X receptors includes six homomeric channels composed of P2X1, P2X2, P2X3, P2X4, P2X5, or P2X7 subunits and six heteromeric channels that involve subunit pairings of P2X1/P2X2, P2X1/P2X4, P2X1/P2X5, P2X2/P2X3, P2X2/P2X6, or P2X4/P2X6.
Pharmacology of cloned P2X receptors.
Sheffield, United Kingdom. In Annu Rev Pharmacol Toxicol, 1999
Six homomeric (P2X1, P2X2, P2X3, P2X4, P2X5, P2X7) and three heteromeric (P2X2/P2X3, P2X4/P2X6, P2X1/P2X5) P2X receptor channels have been characterized in heterologous expression systems.
