Because no significant information exists regarding the structure-activity of vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) to gut smooth muscle, we performed functional studies in vitro on opossum internal anal sphincter (IAS) smooth muscle strips and supplemented them with binding studies to assess...

The purpose of this study was to begin to determine the mechanisms underlying vasodilation elicited by vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) in sterically stabilized liposomes (SSL) in the in situ peripheral microcirculation. Using intravital microscopy, we found that suffusion of VIP...

The effect of VIP on phagocytosis in peritoneal macrophages was examined by means of flow cytometry (FCM). This assay revealed that VIP suppressed phagocytosis in a dose-dependent manner. VIP(1-12) did not suppress phagocytosis. VIP(10-28) was more suppressive than VIP(1-28). A...

It is well known that psoriasis, an immunogenetic cutaneous disorder whose major pathogenic findings are epidermal hyperplasia and T-cell infiltration, is aggravated by psychological stresses. Although the exact mechanism is not yet clarified, antidromic secretion of neuropeptides by cutaneous nerve...

A five-amino-acid (TDNYT) sequence of vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) shares homology with the proposed attachment sequences of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Synthetic peptides with these sequences have previously been shown to block viral envelope (gp120) binding and HIV infectivity...
