Example sentences for: agonist-mediated

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

  • The mutation of one of the tyrosines (Y318F) in the δ-OR or the presence of the Src inhibitor, PP1, significantly reduces tyrosine phosphorylation of this receptor and its ability to activate ERKs [ 11 13 ] . However, a small degree of δ-OR agonist-mediated ERK activation remained in cells expressing the Y318F mutant receptor, suggesting that a second mechanism or an additional tyrosine could be involved.

  • The expressed 5-HT 2C receptor exhibits homologous and heterologous desensitization in oocytes [ 32 ] mediated by protein kinase C [ 33 34 35 ] . A calmodulin-dependent kinase may also be involved in homologous desensitization [ 36 ] . In contrast, a recent study indicates that neither PKC nor calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II are involved, instead desensitization of the 5-HT 2C receptor is dependent on GRK activity [ 37 ] . Interestingly, tyrosine kinase involvement in the agonist-mediated phosphorylation of the rat 5-HT 2C receptor has also been reported [ 38 ] , although as yet no report has shown that the 5-HT 2C receptor directly activates tyrosine kinases.

  • It is probable that the δ-OR in C6 glioma cells also acts as its own platform for the binding of Shc, etc., since the δ-OR also undergoes agonist-mediated tyrosine phosphorylation in this particular cell line (Kramer et al.
