The Salk Institute for Biological Studies (La Jolla, CA) has patented a G-protein-coupled receptor proteins (CRF-R) characterized by having sufficient binding affinity for corticotropin
releasing factor (CRF) such that concentrations of 10 nM of CRF occupy 50% of the binding sites of said receptor protein.
