      DescriptionReady-to-Assay™ CRF1 Corticotropin Releasing Factor Receptor Frozen Cells
      Background InformationMillipore’s Ready-to-Assay GPCR frozen cells are designed for simple, rapid calcium assays with no requirement for intensive cell culturing. Millipore has optimized the freezing conditions to provide cells with high viability and functionality post-thaw. The user simply thaws the cells and resuspends them in media, dispenses cell suspension into assay plates and, following over night recovery, assays for calcium response.

      The CRF1 receptor is a Gs-coupled GPCR expressed in the brain and pituitary gland that binds to several neuropeptides, including corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) and urocortin, and the amphibian peptide sauvagine (Chen et al., 1993; Dautzenberg and Hauger, 2002; Bale and Vale, 2004). CRF plays a predominant role in stress response mediated by the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, and alterations in CRF and its receptors CRF1 and CRF2 appear to be linked to depression and anxiety (Holsboer, 1999; Bale and Vale, 2004). A number of small molecule antagonists of the CRF1 receptor have been characterized, including R121919, SC241, NBI27914, antalarmin, DMP-696, and CP 154,526. When delivered in animal models of psychiatric disorders, these antagonists display effectiveness in reducing stress-related behaviors (Kehne and De Lombaert, 2002). Millipore’s cloned human CRF1-expressing cell line is made in the Chem-1 host, which supports high levels of recombinant CRF1 expression on the cell surface and contains high levels of the promiscuous G protein Gα15 to couple the receptor to the calcium signaling pathway. Thus, the cell line is an ideal tool for screening for agonists, antagonists and modulators at CRF1.
