27129257 GHS-R1b not only determines the efficacy of ghrelin-induced GHS-R1a-mediated signaling but also determines the ability of GHS-R1a to form oligomeric complexes with other receptors.
25727097 Study demonstrates that the GHS-R1a/5-HT2C receptor interaction translates into a biologically significant modulation of ghrelin's orexigenic effect
25603164 The data indicates that GHSR hypermethylation is a pan-cancer marker regardless of the tissue from which the tumor originates.
25524946 the single nucleotide polymorphism of GHSR might be weaker association with cancer risk, especially with breast cancer risk
25376984 This study suggests that the rs696217 and rs2075356 ghrelin gene (GHRL) polymorphisms may protect carriers against breast cancer, and the rs4684677 GHRL and rs572169 GHSR polymorphisms may increase the risk among carriers.[Meta-analysis]
25261469 findings suggest an avenue for modulating drug abuse-associated changes in synaptic plasticity via GHSR1a and indicate the development of GHSR1a-biased ligands as a promising strategy for selectively targeting downstream signaling events.
25200304 Data (including data from knockout mice) suggest ghrelin produced in pancreatic islets regulates insulin secretion and thereby regulates blood glucose; ghrelin signaling via growth hormone secretagogue-receptor appears to be involved. [REVIEW]
24809812 The Ghr and GHSR-1a were co-expressed by the pigmented epithelium (PE) of the CB, by the retinal pigmented epithelium (RPE) and by the anterior limiting layer (ALL) of the iris.
24651458 Data indicate that activation of growth hormone secretagogue receptor (GHSR) may trigger a diversity of signaling mechanisms and subsequent distinct physiological responses.
24194510 Studies suggest that dysregulation in the components of the ghrelin system including ghrelin, ghrelin receptor (GHSR1a) and ghrelin-O-acyl-transferase can lead to or influence the development and/or progression of highly concerning pathologies.
