  • stimulate
  • Studies have yet to reveal the exact nature of these changes, but some scientists have suggested that alpha -endorphin may stimulate the brain in a manner similar to amphetamines, while others indicate that gamma -endorphin originates at times from cells of the stomach and may help treat anaphylactic shock and similar conditions.

  • hormones

  • gamma
  • hello, i'm doing a project on endorphins and have had a lot of trouble finding specific information on the levels of molecular structure (primary, secondary etc..) even when i've narrowed down my searches to specific alpha-,beta-,gamma- queries, i've been unable to find anything. (biology-online.org)

  • The idea that exercise creates a huge endorphin rush entered popular culture soon after endorphins were discovered 40 years ago, says Matthews. (cnn.com)
  • Strenuous exercise can raise levels of both substances, although endorphins are more likely to be triggered and released by exercise, research shows. (wisegeek.com)
  • However, there are many ways of increasing endorphins other than exercise and/or taking drugs. (healthtap.com)
  • Endorphin-boosting exercise. (wikipedia.org)
  • resistance
  • The structure of β-endorphin in part accounts for this through its resistance to proteolytic enzymes, as its secondary structure makes it less vulnerable to degradation. (wikipedia.org)
  • However
  • However, endorphin levels vary between individuals, so results will also vary. (medicalnewstoday.com)
  • Acytelation of the N-terminus of β-endorphin, however, inactivates the neuropeptide, preventing it from binding to its receptor. (wikipedia.org)
