Secretion of the trefoil factor TFF3 from the isolated vascularly perfused rat colon
The trefoil factor TFF3 is a peptide predominantly produced by mucus-secreting cells in the small and large intestines. It has been implicated in intestinal protection and repair. The mechanisms thatExpand

Calcium-dependent release of neuromedin N and neurotensin from mouse hypothalamus
Neuromedin N (NN), a hexapeptide, was isolated from porcine spinal cord. Its C-terminal tetrapeptide sequence is identical to that of neurotensin (NT) and it exhibits NT-like effects when injected inExpand

Post-translational processing of the neurotensin/neuromedin N precursor in the central nervous system of the rat—I. Biochemical characterization of maturation products
Neurotensin and neuromedin N are two biologically active related peptides which are encoded in the same precursor molecule. In the rat, the precursor consists of a 169-residue polypeptide containingExpand
