Co-storage and secretion of growth hormone and secretoneurin in retinal ganglion cells.
Edmonton, Canada. In Gen Comp Endocrinol, Oct 2015
In this work we demonstrate for the first time that GH- and secretoneurin (SN) immunoreactivity (the secretogranin II (SgII) fragment) are similarly present in retinal ganglion cells (RGCs), which is an extrapituitary site of GH expression, and in quail QNR/D cells, which provide an experimental RGC model.
Is secretoneurin a new hormone?
Ottawa, Canada. In Gen Comp Endocrinol, 2012
Numerous small potentially bioactive peptides are derived from the selective processing of the ~600 amino acid secretogranin II (SgII) precursor, but only the 31-42 amino acid segment termed secretoneurin (SN) is well-conserved from sharks to mammals.
The extended granin family: structure, function, and biomedical implications.
Minneapolis, United States. In Endocr Rev, 2011
The chromogranins (chromogranin A and chromogranin B), secretogranins (secretogranin II and secretogranin III), and additional related proteins (7B2, NESP55, proSAAS, and VGF) that together comprise the granin family subserve essential roles in the regulated secretory pathway that is responsible for controlled delivery of peptides, hormones, neurotransmitters, and growth factors.
Granins as disease-biomarkers: translational potential for psychiatric and neurological disorders.
Parma, Italy. In Neuroscience, 2010
This article discusses the biomarker potential of the granin family, a group of acidic proteins present in the secretory granules of a wide variety of endocrine, neuronal and neuroendocrine cells: chromogranin A (CgA), CgB, Secretogranin II (SgII), SgIII, HISL-19 antigen, 7B2, NESP55, VGF and ProSAAS.
Cell-free protein sorting to the regulated and constitutive secretory pathways.
Heidelberg, Germany. In Cell, 1990
To elucidate the mechanism of secretory granule formation, we here identify the first intermediate in this process, the immature secretory granule, in the neuroendocrine cell line PC12 and demonstrate the packaging of a regulated secretory protein, secretogranin II, to immature secretory granules in a cell-free system.
