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.

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

  • 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.

  • These findings raise two related questions: 1) can δ-opioid receptors be internalized in vivo by the same agonist-induced endocytosis observed in vitro ? and if this is the case, 2) does the internalization process have the same kinetics reported from in vitro studies?

  • In vitro studies, carried out on NG108-15 neurohybrid cells which express large numbers of δ-opioid receptors, show that these receptors undergo a rapid agonist-induced desensitization that occurs within minutes and down-regulation that occurs more slowly over several hours ( 4, 7).
