Method Researchers study the mechanism of regulation of TRH-R mRNA in a line of GH3 cells that are stably transfected with mouse pituitary TRH-R cDNA (GH-mTRHR-1 cells).
Comments Researchers developed a rat pituitary cell line, GH-mTRHR-1, that is stably transfected with a mouse pituitary TRH-R cDNA. GH-mTRHR-1 cells contain approximately 40,000 TRH-Rs/cell and respond to TRH with the expected generation of inositol lipid-derived second messengers.
