ChemiScreen™ GnRH Receptor Stable Cell Line

Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH), also known as luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH), regulates the reproductive hormonal cascade in vertebrates. Upon release from the hypothalamus, GnRH stimulates secretion of luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone from the pituitary. In humans, the type I GnRH receptor is a GPCR that is unusual in the lack of a cytoplasmic C-terminal tail. Although some species contain a type II GnRH receptor, the human version of this second receptor appears to contain mutations that render it inactive. GnRH analogs (agonists) are used in low doses in a pulsatile fashion in the treatment of infertility, delayed puberty and cryptorchidism. GnRH agonists at high doses desensitize the receptor, and are used along with antagonists in the treatment of hormone-dependent diseases (Millar et al., 2004). Cloned human GnRH receptor-expressing ChemiScreen cells were constructed by stable transfection of Chem-1 cells with GnRH. These stability-tested cells are ready for fluorescence-based assays for agonists, antagonists and modulators at the GnRH receptor.

  • [User Manual] ChemiSCREEN™ and ChemiBRITE™ Cell Lines

    The ChemiSCREEN and ChemiBRITE Cell Lines are designed to enable the measurement of intracellular calcium levels when a GPCR of interest has been activated by a ligand. These cell lines are suitable for studying small molecules as well as biologics. The assay protocol has been optimized for use in either a 384-well or 96-well format.
