Human OX1 Orexin Receptor Cell Line

The orexins (orexin-A and orexin-b) have a range of physiological functions including the control of feeding and energy metabolism, modulation of neuroendocrine function, and regulation of the sleep-wake cycle. The two orexin receptor subtypes OX1 and OX2 both mediate the action of orexin-A and orexin-B and couple efficiently through Gq/11 to activate phospholipase C and lead to elevation of intracellular calcium, though orexin-A is equipotent at OX1 and OX2, whilst orexin-B displays a moderate selectivity for OX2.
