Cholecystokinin was one of the first gastrointestinal peptides discovered in the mammalian brain. In the central nervous system there is evidence for CCKA and CCKB receptor subtypes. The CCKA receptors occur in a few localized areas of the central and peripheral nervous systems where they modulate feeding and dopamine-induced behavior. CCKB receptors occur… CONTINUE READING
