Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Dose Response confirmation of uHTS hits for small molecule agonists of the CRF-binding protein and CRF-R2 receptor complex
Description:  Data Source: Sanford-Burnham Center for Chemical Genomics (SBCCG) Source Affiliation: Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute (SBMRI, San Diego, CA) Network: NIH Molecular Libraries Probe Production Centers Network (MLPCN) Grant Proposal Number: 1 R21 DA029966-01 Assay Providers: Selena Bartlett, Ph.D., Ernest Gallo Clinic and Research Center, University of California, San Francisco and Nick Cosford, Ph.D., Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute There is accumulating scientific evidence showing that stressors enhance addictive behaviors and are a common cause of relapse to substance abuse. Corticotrophin releasing factor (CRF) is a 41-aa peptide that has been shown to induce various behavioral changes related to adaptation to stress. The CRF system, including the CRF-binding protein (CRF-BP) and the CRF receptors, CRF-R1 and CRF-R2, are thought to contribute, to the physiological adaptations that result from stress. It has been shown that CRF interaction with CRF-BP may positi
