Background: Neuropeptide FF receptor 1 (NPFF1) acts as a modulator of endogenous opioid function. NPFF1 is found across the central nervous system. It is widely expressed in the hypothalamus and limbic system. Recent studies performed on NPPF1 receptors in mice implicate the receptor as an important regulator of body temperature.
Application: Functional assays
Figure 1. Dose-dependent inhibition of forskolin-stimulated intracellular cAMP level upon treatment with ligand, measured with MultiscreenTM TR-FRET cAMP 1.0 No Wash Assay Kit (Multispan MSCM01). Figure 2. Receptor expression on cell surface measured by flow cytometry (FACS) using an anti-FLAG antibody. Thin line: parental cells; thick line: receptor- expressing cells.
