AD subjects had greater EMG and heart rate activity as well as higher anxiety scores on the Symptom Checklist-90R. These results suggest that AD may have a psychophysiological component.
Previous studies have shown differences in the biological activity and the structure of two naturally occurring tachykinin peptides, substance P (SP, RPKPQQFFGLM-NH2) and ranatachykinin C (RTKC, HNPASFIGLM-NH2). To further understand the basis for these differences, four analogs that selectively incorporate the amino acid differences between SP and RTKC(More)
