As we commemorate the 25th anniversary of the journal Peptides, it is timely to review the functional significance of the bombesin (BB)-like peptides and receptors in the CNS. Over two decades ago we published an article in the journal Peptides demonstrating that BB-like peptides are present in high densities in certain rat brain regions (such as the paraventricular nucleus of the hypothalamus). Subsequently, one of the mammalian forms of BB, gastrin-releasing peptide (GRP) containing cell… CONTINUE READING
