Constitutive Activity among Orphan Class-A G Protein Coupled Receptors.
Rolla, United States. In Plos One, 2014
Five patterns of activity were noted: 1) inhibition under both baseline and forskolin stimulated expression (GPR15, GPR17, GPR18, GPR20, GPR25, GPR27, GPR31, GPR32, GPR45, GPR57, GPR68, GPR83, GPR84, GPR132, GPR150, GPR176); 2) no effect on baseline expression, but inhibition of forskolin stimulated expression (GPR4, GPR26, GPR61, GPR62, GPR78, GPR101, GPR119); 3) elevation of baseline signaling coupled with inhibition of forskolin stimulated expression (GPR6, GPR12); 4) elevation of baseline signaling without inhibition of forskolin stimulated expression (GPR3, GPR21, GPR52, GPR65); and 5) no effect on expression (GPR1, GPR19, GPR22, GPR34, GPR35, GPR39, GPR63, GPR82, GPR85, GPR87).
Integrative pathway dissection of molecular mechanisms of moxLDL-induced vascular smooth muscle phenotype transformation.
Toronto, Canada. In Bmc Cardiovasc Disord, 2012
Also, several "nexus" genes in complex networks, including components of the multi-subunit enzyme complex involved in the terminal stages of cholesterol synthesis, microRNAs (miR-203, miR-511, miR-590-3p, miR-346*/miR- 1207-5p/miR-4763-3p), GPCR proteins (GPR1, GPR64, GPRC5A, GPR171, GPR176, GPR32, GPR25, GPR124) and signal transduction pathways, were found to be regulated.
Omega-3 fatty acids in anti-inflammation (pro-resolution) and GPCRs.
Pusan, South Korea. In Prog Lipid Res, 2012
Furthermore, the conversions of omega-3 fatty acids to anti-inflammatory and pro-resolving resolvins and protectins and the identifications of putative target GPCRs, ChemR23, BLT₁, ALX/FPR2, and GPR32, have drawn great attention.
Resolvins: natural agonists for resolution of pulmonary inflammation.
Boston, United States. In Prog Lipid Res, 2011
Acting as agonists at specific receptors (CMKLR1, BLT1, ALX/FPR2 and GPR32), resolvins can signal for potent counter-regulatory effects on leukocyte functions, including preventing uncontrolled neutrophil swarming, decreasing the generation of cytokines, chemokines and reactive oxygen species and promoting clearance of apoptotic neutrophils from inflamed tissues.
