Functional Characterization of the In Vitro Folded Human Y1 Receptor in Lipid Environment
Abstract:We describe the recombinant production of the human Y1 receptor from inclusion bodies of E. coli cultures. The in vitro refolding was carried out in the presence of lipids from bovine brain extracts. Y1 receptors in brain lipids compete for cellular receptors in competitive binding experiments.

More about this publication?
- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
