 Synonyms & Historicals
Neuropeptides .
Neuropeptide .
Peptides released by NEURONS as intercellular messengers. Many neuropeptides are also hormones released by non-neuronal cells. .
Receptors, Neuropeptide .
Neuropeptide Receptor .
Receptors, Neuropeptides .
Neuropeptides Receptors .
Receptor, Neuropeptide .
Neuropeptide Receptors .
Cell surface receptors that bind specific neuropeptides with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes influencing the behavior of cells. Many neuropeptides are also hormones outside of the nervous system. .
Neuropeptide Y .
Neuropeptide Tyrosine .
Neuropeptide Y Like Immunoreactive Peptide .
Tyrosine, Neuropeptide .
Neuropeptide Y-Like Immunoreactive Peptide .
A 36-amino acid peptide present in many organs and in many sympathetic noradrenergic neurons. It has vasoconstrictor and natriuretic activity and regulates local blood flow, glandular secretion, and smooth muscle activity. The peptide also stimulates feeding and drinking behavior and influences secretion of pituitary hormones. .

PHI Peptide .
A 27-amino acid peptide with histidine at the N-terminal and isoleucine amide at the C-terminal. The exact amino acid composition of the peptide is species dependent. The peptide is secreted in the intestine, but is found in the nervous system, many organs, and in the majority of peripheral tissues. It has a wide range of biological actions, affecting the cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, respiratory, and central nervous systems. .
