Gastrin-releasing peptide

Bombesin, Gastrin-Releasing Peptide, GRP
This gene encodes a member of the bombesin-like family of gastrin-releasing peptides. Its preproprotein, following cleavage of a signal peptide, is further processed to produce either the 27 aa gastrin-releasing peptide or the 10 aa neuromedin C. These smaller peptides regulate numerous functions of the gastrointestinal and central nervous systems, including release of gastrointestinal hormones, smooth muscle cell contraction, and epithelial cell proliferation. These peptides are also likely to play a role in human cancers of the lung, colon, stomach, pancreas, breast, and prostate. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Critical role of endoplasmic reticulum stress in chronic intermittent hypoxia-induced deficits in synaptic plasticity and long-term memory.
Yung et al., Hong Kong, Hong Kong. In Antioxid Redox Signal, 04 May 2015
RESULTS: Two weeks of intermittent hypoxia disrupted ER fine structure and upregulated ER stress markers Grp 78, caspase-12 and C/EBP homologous protein (CHOP) in the hippocampus, which could be suppressed by ER stress inhibitors tauroursodeoxycholic acid and 4-phenylbutyrate.

Transmission of Pruriceptive Signals.
Hoon et al., Bethesda, United States. In Handb Exp Pharmacol, Dec 2014
Current data reveal that DRG neurons and spinal cord cells use a remarkably selective set of transmitters to convey pruritic information from the periphery to the brain: glutamate and Nppb are released from primary itch-sensory cells; these molecules activate secondary spinal cord pruriceptive-specific neurons, which in turn utilize Grp to activate tertiary pruriceptive-selective neurons.
Gastrin-releasing peptide receptor signaling in the integration of stress and memory.

Gastrin-releasing peptide (GRP) is a 27-amino acid mammalian neuropeptide, homolog of the amphibian peptide bombesin.

Liu et al., In Zhonghua Nan Ke Xue, Jun 2014
A collection of neurons in the upper lumbar spinal cord (lumbar segments 3 and 4) of male rats project to the lower lumbar spinal cord (lumbar segments 5 and 6) and release a gastrin-releasing peptide (GRP) to the somatic and autonomic regions, which are known to regulate male sexual reflexes.
