- Molecular cloning of ovine and bovine growth hormone-releasing hormone receptors: the ovine receptor is C-terminally truncatedR Horikawa
Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism, Department of Medicine, University of Virginia Health System, Charlottesville, Virginia 22908, USA
Endocrinology 142:2660-8. 2001..This suggests that this C-terminal domain acts to inhibit cAMP signaling possibly through a role in receptor down regulation...
