Islet Amyloid Polypeptide .
Amlintide .
Amylin .
IAPP Precursor .
IAPP Protein .
Insulinoma Amyloid Polypeptide .
Insulinoma Amyloid Polypeptide Precursor .

Pancreatic Amylin .
Amylin, Pancreatic .
Amyloid Polypeptide, Insulinoma .
Amyloid Polypeptide, Islet .
Polypeptide, Insulinoma Amyloid .
Polypeptide, Islet Amyloid .
A pancreatic beta-cell hormone that is co-secreted with INSULIN. It displays an anorectic effect on nutrient metabolism by inhibiting gastric acid secretion, gastric emptying and postprandial GLUCAGON secretion. Islet amyloid polypeptide can fold into AMYLOID FIBRILS that have been found as a major constituent of pancreatic AMYLOID DEPOSITS. .
Amyloid .
Amyloid Fibrils .
Amyloid Substance .
Fibrils, Amyloid .
Substance, Amyloid .
A fibrous protein complex that consists of proteins folded into a specific cross beta-pleated sheet structure. This fibrillar structure has been found as an alternative folding pattern for a variety of functional proteins. Deposits of amyloid in the form of AMYLOID PLAQUES are associated with a variety of degenerative diseases. The amyloid structure has also been found in a number of functional proteins that are unrelated to disease. .
Pancreatic Polypeptide .
Pancreatic Polypeptide (PP) .
Pancreatic Polypeptide Hormone .
Pancreatic Prohormone .
A 36-amino acid pancreatic hormone that is secreted mainly by endocrine cells found at the periphery of the ISLETS OF LANGERHANS and adjacent to cells containing SOMATOSTATIN and GLUCAGON. Pancreatic polypeptide (PP), when administered peripherally, can suppress gastric secretion, gastric emptying, pancreatic enzyme secretion, and appetite. A lack of pancreatic polypeptide (PP) has been associated with OBESITY in rats and mice. .

Secretases .
alpha-Secretase .
beta-Secretase .

Secretase, APP .
alpha Secretase .
beta Secretase .
gamma Secretase .
Endopeptidases that are specific for AMYLOID PROTEIN PRECURSOR. Three secretase subtypes referred to as alpha, beta, and gamma have been identified based upon the region of amyloid protein precursor they cleave. .

An ACUTE PHASE REACTION protein present in low concentrations in normal sera, but found at higher concentrations in sera of older persons and in patients with AMYLOIDOSIS. It is the circulating precusor of amyloid A protein, which is found deposited in AA type AMYLOID FIBRILS. .
