High impact information on Gnaz

  • Gi1 alpha was expressed in RPT of SHR and WKY rats to the same levels, but neither G(o) alpha nor Gz alpha was detected in these membranes; higher (50%) expression levels of Gi2 alpha were found in SHR [1].
  • Mature adipocytes express Gi alpha 1, Gi alpha 2, Gi alpha 3, Go alpha, Gq/11 alpha, G13 alpha and the long and short isoforms of Gs alpha, but no Gz alpha or G12 alpha [2].
  • Gz alpha/Gx alpha mRNA was expressed in all pituitary cell lines as well as in pituitary tissue [3].
