Expression profiling of G-protein-coupled receptors in human urothelium and related cell lines
BJU International, 05/07/2012
Ochodnicky P et al. – Human urothelium expresses a wide range of receptors which enables sensing and integration of various extracellular signals. Human urothelium–derived cell lines, especially urothelium–derived non–cancer cells, show comparable mRNA expression to native tissue for several physiologically relevant G–protein–coupled receptors, but lose expression of many other receptors.
