  • Galanin was first identified from porcine intestinal extracts in 1978 by Professor Viktor Mutt and colleagues at the Karolinska Institute, Sweden using a chemical assay technique that detects peptides according to its C-terminal alanine amide structure. (wikipedia.org)
  • They produce gastrointestinal hormones or peptides in response to various stimuli and release them into the bloodstream for systemic effect, diffuse them as local messengers, or transmit them to the enteric nervous system to activate nervous responses. (wikipedia.org)
  • Vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) has been shown to enhance steroid production in vivo in rabbits (1) and humans (2) and in vitro in prepubertal rat ovaries (3), isolated rat granulosa cells (4), as well as cultured baboon granulosa cells (5). (springer.com)

  • The G cells secrete gastrin, post-ganglionic fibers of the vagus nerve can release gastrin-releasing peptide during parasympathetic stimulation to stimulate secretion. (wikipedia.org)
  • Adaptive antiviral cellular immunity was increased in mCMV-infected VIP-KO mice compared with WT mice, with more Th1/Tc1-polarized T cells, fewer IL-10 + T cells, and more mCMV-M45 epitope peptide MHC class I tetramer + CD8 + T cells (tetramer + CD8 T cells). (jimmunol.org)
  • The intestinal phase: The remaining 10% of acid is secreted when chyme enters the small intestine, and is stimulated by small intestine distension and by amino acids. (wikipedia.org)
  • This demonstrates that it is essential to study the effects of galanin and other regulatory peptides in their autologous species. (wikipedia.org)
  • We investigated whether Clostridium difficile toxin alters colonic tissue levels of vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) at the expense of changes in colonic motility in the isolated perfused rabbit left colon. (hindawi.com)
  • We demonstrate here that administration of a hybrid peptide antagonist that blocks VIP signaling enhances CD8 T cell responses in a murine model of AML. (jimmunol.org)
