Leptin enters the brain by a saturable system independent of insulin
Transport of brain-derived neurotrophic factor across the blood–brain barrier
Murine tumor necrosis factor alpha is transported from blood to brain in the mouse
A potent and selective endogenous agonist for the µ-opiate receptor
The discovery and isolation from brain of a peptide, endomorphin-1 (Tyr-Pro-Trp-Phe-NH2), which has the highest specificity and affinity for the µ receptor of any endogenous substance so far described and they maybe natural ligands for this receptor.
Passage of cytokines across the blood-brain barrier.
Evidence shows that passage of cytokines across the blood-brain barrier occurs, providing a route by which blood-borne cytokines could potentially affect brain function.
A potent and selective endogenous agonist for the mu-opiate receptor.
The discovery and isolation from brain of a peptide, endomorphin-1 (Tyr-Pro-Trp-Phe-NH2), which has the highest specificity and affinity for the mu receptor of any endogenous substance so far described and they may be natural ligands for this receptor.
Entry of exendin-4 into brain is rapid but may be limited at high doses
The results indicate that exendin-4 is well conformed for exerting central effects involved in the control of obesity.
Interactions of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) with the blood-brain barrier
It is concluded that [Ser8]GLp-1 and the endogenous peptide GLP-1 can gain access to the brain from the periphery by simple diffusion and thus contribute to the regulation of feeding.
Penetration of interleukin-6 across the murine blood-brain barrier
Differential distribution of endomorphin 1- and endomorphin 2-like immunoreactivities in the CNS of the rodent.
The neuroanatomical results suggest that endomorphins participate in modulating nociceptive and autonomic nervous system processes and responsiveness to stress.
