Amylin/CGRP


Lutz, T A (2013). Amylin/CGRP. In: Kastin, Abba. Handbook of Biologically Active Peptides (Second Edition). Elsevier: Academic Press, 1049-1056.

Abstract

This chapter focuses on the anorectic action of the pancreatic hormone amylin and the structurally related peptide calcitonin-gene related peptide (CGRP). Both peptides when given peripherally or centrally produce potent anorectic effects and delay gastric emptying. The anorectic action of CGRP seems to parallel amylin’s effect on eating in many aspects; however, in this chapter, more emphasis will be put on the effects of amylin on eating because amylin’s effects may be of physiological relevance but this is less clear in the case of CGRP. Other effects of CGRP are mentioned in other chapters of this book.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
