O0266 Obestatin mouse, rat synthetic Obestatin opposes the action of circulating appetite-inducing hormone-ghrelin and plays a vital role in weight regulation via hindering food intake, jejunal contraction and reducing the body weight. Obestatin mediates its activity by interacting with the G-protein coupled receptor 39 (GPR-39).
