Neurotensin (NTS) functions as both a neurotransmitter and a hormone through the activation of the neurotensin receptor NTSR1, a G-protein-coupled receptor (GPCR). In the brain, NTS modulates the activity of dopaminergic systems, opioid-independent analgesia, and the inhibition of food intake; in the gut, NTS regulates a range of digestive processes.
This is a 3D printed protein model of a Neurotensin Receptor colored by the protein’s hydrophobicity. 3D printed Biologic Model of a Neurotensin Receptor and printed in full color sandstone.
Designed to be used with the Neurotension Receptor Base.
