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:

  • The human alpha-2A adrenergic receptor has an acidic serine-rich motif (EESSSSD) in the third intracellular loop that has been shown to be important in agonist-induced desensitization but not in agonist-induced sequestration/internalization.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • In adrenergic receptors, which have been characterized in detail, rapid endocytosis appears to be required for resensitization of receptors following agonist-induced phosphorylation ( 28).
