Example sentences for: agonist-induced

How can you use “agonist-induced” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • Indeed, this motif is not found in the alpha-2B subtype which does undergo agonist-induced down-regulation, although as noted above a highly acidic region appears to be important and could be related to the additional negative charge provided by phosphorylation.

  • There are three subtypes of the alpha-2 adrenergic receptor: alpha-2A; alpha-2B; and alpha-2C [ 15 ] . The human alpha-2A subtype undergoes phosphorylation and short-term desensitization [ 11 12 ] , whereas the human alpha-2C subtype is not phosphorylated [ 16 ] and does not desensitize [ 11 ] . The human alpha-2C subtype, however, does undergo arrestin-dependent internalization [ 17 ] . Many studies [ 11 18 ] , including those from our laboratory [ 10 19 20 ] , have demonstrated agonist-induced down-regulation of alpha-2 receptors, although much less is known about the specific mechanisms for down-regulation as compared to the beta-2 receptor.

  • All three alpha-2 adrenergic receptor subtypes from nearly all species that have been tested undergo agonist-induced down-regulation [ 24 25 ] . Interestingly, we have shown that the potency of norepinephrine to produce down-regulation differs among alpha-2 receptor subtypes [ 19 24 ] . The concentration of norepinephrine required to produce half-maximal down-regulation is approximately 2 μM for the alpha-2A receptor.

  • The human alpha-2C receptor is somewhat unique among the alpha-2 receptors in that it does not appear to undergo agonist-induced down-regulation [ 11 ] . The human alpha-2A adrenergic receptor, which does undergo down-regulation, has an acidic serine motif (EESSSSD) in the third intracellular loop.

  • In the present work, we demonstrate that δ-opioid receptor undergo rapid agonist-induced endocytosis in the CNS.
