The corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF; 41 amino acid residues) is a major regulatory peptide in the response to stress and is distributed over many regions of the brain. We have studied the enzymatic degradation of CRF and related peptides by the CRF-degrading enzyme(s) of the rat brain (CRF-DA) by liquid-chromatographic-mass spectrometric technique and(More)
There are two types of superactive agonists of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRHa-I: (D-amino acid)6-GnRH and GnRHa-II: (D-amino acid)6-(desGly)10-GnRH- ethylamide) the high hormonal activity of which is understood to be due to their higher receptor affinity and their higher proteolytic stability as compared with the native GnRH sequence. Using the(More)
