Abstract: The P2Y(12)-receptor plays a prominent role in ADP-induced platelet aggregation. In the present study, we searched for amino acid residues involved in ligand recognition of the human P2Y(12)-receptor. Wild-type or mutated receptors were expressed in 1321N1 astrocytoma cells and Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells. There were no major differences in cellular expression of the constructs. Cellular cAMP production and cAMP response element (CRE)-dependent luciferase expression was increased by isoproterenol (astroc…
