Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified E B
The neuromedins (Nm) are a family of bioactive peptides best known for their roles in smooth muscle contraction. Nm family of bioactive peptides include: Bombesin-like (NmB, NmC), kassinin-like (NmL and NmK or neurokinins A and B), neurotensin-like (NmN), and neuromedin U (NmU; for its ability to stimulate uterine muscle contraction). NmU-like immunoreactivity has been detected in mammalian brain, GI-tracts of various species, and in the thyroid and endocrine cells of pituitary glands. Besides its roles in smooth muscle contraction (human ileum, urinary bladder, rat stomach etc), NmU has also been implicated in hypertension, blood flow in intestine, and neurotransmission. Recently two structurally related, orphan G-protein coupled receptors, termed NMUR1 (GPCR66/FM-3/SNORF62) and NMUR2 (TGR-1/FM-4/SNORF72), have been identified as cognate receptors of NmU.
