Angela J Okragly et al.
Cephalalgia : an international journal of headache, 38(9), 1564-1574 (2017-11-07)
Background Many patients with migraines suffer from allergies and vice versa, suggesting a relationship between biological mechanisms of allergy and migraine. It was proposed many years ago that mast cells may be involved in the pathophysiology of migraines. We set
T Yada et al.
The Journal of biological chemistry, 269(2), 1290-1293 (1994-01-14)
Insulin secretion from pancreatic islets is controlled by peptides as well as by nutrients. We report here a novel, extraordinarily potent peptidergic regulation of insulin secretion. A 27-residue form of pituitary adenylate cyclase activating polypeptide (PACAP27) as low as 10(-14)
Emi Nakajima et al.
Molecular vision, 19, 174-183 (2013-02-05)
Our previous studies in the rabbit trigeminal nerve (TgN) showed that pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating peptide (PACAP) accelerated the extension of neuronal processes and recovery of corneal sensitivity. The purposes of the present study were 1) develop a procedure to culture
Christiane Rose et al.
BMC neuroscience, 13, 84-84 (2012-07-25)
Amyloid precursor protein (APP), a key molecule in Alzheimer's disease (AD), is metabolized in two alternative cleavages, generating either the amyloidogenic peptides involved in AD pathology or the soluble form of APP (sAPPα). The level of amyloidogenic peptides in human
João C R Cardoso et al.
Molecular and cellular endocrinology, 411, 130-145 (2015-05-03)
Pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP) administered to tilapia melanophores ex-vivo causes significant pigment aggregation and this is a newly identified function for this peptide in fish. The G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs), adcyap1r1a (encoding Pac1a) and vipr2a (encoding Vpac2a), are the
Wenjie Chen et al.
Molecular therapy. Nucleic acids, 7, 366-377 (2017-06-19)
Liposomes are an effective gene and/or drug delivery system, widely used in biomedical applications including gene therapy and chemotherapy. Here, we designed a photo-responsive liposome (lipVP) loaded with a photosensitizer verteporfin (VP). This photosensitizer is clinically approved for photodynamic therapy
S R Rawlings et al.
The Journal of biological chemistry, 269(8), 5680-5686 (1994-02-25)
Pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP) increases cAMP production and stimulates hormone release from a variety of anterior pituitary cells. However, in anterior pituitary gonadotrophs PACAP stimulates oscillations in cytosolic free Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) that appear to be independent of cAMP.
B Koch et al.
Regulatory peptides, 38(1), 45-53 (1992-03-05)
The present study was aimed at investigating whether PACAP stimulates accumulation of cAMP, as well as hormonal secretion of homogeneous populations of pituitary proopiomelanocortin (POMC) cells, namely melanotrophs and AtT-20 corticotrophs. PACAP was shown to enhance cAMP accumulation in a
