In view of the observation that corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) affects several brain functions through at least two subtypes of G protein-dependent receptors and a binding protein (CRFBP), we have developed synthetic strategies to provide enhanced binding specificity. Human/rat CRF (h/rCRF) and the CRF-like peptide sauvagine (Svg), differing in their(More)
Corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) and the CRF-like peptide urocortin I (UcnI) exert their activity through two different CRF receptors, CRF1 and CRF2. Recently, UcnII and UcnIII have been discovered as potential endogenous agonists selective for CRF2 known to be involved in brain functions such as learning and anxiety, as well as in cardiovascular(More)
