High impact information on GnRHR1

  • In contrast, only GnRH receptor 1 activated inositol phosphate turnover in response to one of the Ciona GnRHs [1].
  • Each Ciona GnRH receptor was expressed in COS-7 cells, incubated with each of the six C. intestinalis GnRHs and assayed for a signaling response [1].
  • The Ci-GnRHR1 and Ci-GnRHR2 genes are closely linked to each other and form a cluster with another GnRHR-like gene in the genome [2].
  • A voltage clamp of Xenopus oocytes injected with synthetic Ci-GnRHR1 mRNA revealed inward currents in response to an ascidian form of GnRH, suggesting that Ci-GnRHR1 is a bona-fide GnRHR [2].

Other interactions of GnRHR1

  • Expression patterns of Ci-GnRHR1 and Ci-GnRHR2 suggest that a GnRH signaling system is involved in regulation of neuronal and reproductive processes as well as in other physiological functions in ascidians [2].
