Metabolism of Brain Peptides discusses neuropeptide metabolism in light of recent research. It describes the processing mechanisms in the production of biologically active peptides. It details distribution of the variety of neuropeptides in the brain and comprehensively reviews the effects of these neuropeptides on behavioral and physiological functions. The book also examines termination mechanisms for the biological activities of neuropeptides in light of recent knowledge of their distribution, their receptors and their possible inactivation enzymes in various functional regions of the brain and at the blood-brain barrier.

Textul de pe ultima copertă

This volume presents aspects of the biosynthesis, mode of action, function and degradation of nueropeptides. It is not a comprehensive review of the biochemistry and pharmacology of each and every neuropeptide but treats with peptides where a sufficient corpus of information is available on a particular facet to contribute to an overall picture of the biology of brain peptides.
