Sample text

Humans express at least six isoforms of actin: two striated muscle isoforms (a-skeletal and a-cardiac), two smooth muscle isoforms (a-smooth muscle and a-enteric), and two widely expressed cytoplasmic isoforms (b-cytoplasmic and g-cytoplasmic). The a-skeletal and a-cardiac striated muscle isoforms are expressed specifically in muscle tissues where they form arrays of “thin” filaments that interdigitate with “thick” filaments composed of the motor protein myosin. Sliding of the thick and thin filaments past each other drives contraction of the muscle tissue.

Nucl. Acids Res. 25, 4876– 4882. BIOGRAPHY R. Dyche Mullins is an Assistant Professor of Cellular and Molecular Pharmacology at the University of California Medical School, San Francisco. As an undergraduate, graduate student, and Postdoctoral Fellow he studied Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, and Biochemistry. His research goal is to understand how interactions between signaling molecules and structural molecules determine the architecture of living cells. Adenosine Receptors Lauren J. Murphree and Joel Linden University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia, USA Adenosine is a purine nucleoside that serves as a link between energy metabolism and cell signaling.

This pharmacological subtype is a species orthologue of the human alpha-2A subtype, and thus it is not considered to be a separate genetic subtype. PHARMACOLOGICAL AND MOLECULAR CHARACTERISTICS OF ALPHA-2 ADRENERGIC RECEPTORS In addition to norepinephrine and epinephrine, alpha-2 receptors are activated by clonidine (Catapres) and brimonidine (Alphagan). These agonists are relatively selective for alpha-2 receptors and have lower affinity at alpha-1 and beta receptors. Similarly, the antagonist yohimibine is relatively selective for alpha-2 receptors and blocks alpha-1 and beta receptors only at higher concentrations.
