Gastrointestinal peptides and itch sensation.
Boston, United States. In Curr Opin Endocrinol Diabetes Obes, Feb 2015
Several neuropeptides including GRP, neuromedin B, and substance P regulate itch signals in a cooperative or inhibitory manner on the spinal level.
Brown Adipose YY1 Deficiency Activates Expression of Secreted Proteins Linked to Energy Expenditure and Prevents Diet-Induced Obesity.
Boston, United States. In Mol Cell Biol, 2014
In contrast, YY1 represses a series of secreted proteins, including fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21), bone morphogenetic protein 8b (BMP8b), growth differentiation factor 15 (GDF15), angiopoietin-like 6 (Angptl6), neuromedin B, and nesfatin, linked to energy expenditure.
Mechanism of bombesin-induced tonic contraction of the porcine lower esophageal sphincter.
Kao-hsiung, Taiwan. In Sci Rep, 2014
We used the selective agonists, neuromedin B (NMB), gastrin-releasing peptide (GRP), and [D-Tyr(6),Apa-4Cl(11),Phe(13),Nle(14)]bombesin-(6-14) (DTACPN-BN), as well as receptor antagonists of bombesin receptor subtype 2 (BB2), and 3 (BB3) for ex vivo contraction studies.
Sugammadex: A revolutionary drug in neuromuscular pharmacology.
Pondicherry, India. In Anesth Essays Res, 2013
Sugammadex (ORG 25969) is a unique neuromuscular reversal drug; a novel cyclodextrin, the first in a new class of selective relaxant binding agents, which reverse neuromuscular blockade (NMB) with the aminosteroid non-depolarizing muscle relaxants rocuronium and vecuronium.
