  • Processing of the precursor to neurotensin/neuromedin-N was studied in brain and intestine from four mammalian species (dog, cat, guinea pig and rat) using previously characterized immunoassays for neurotensin and neuromedin-N, as well as newly developed assays towards the 35-44 sequence (P1) and the 70-85 sequence (P2) of the canine precursor. While neurotensin was the major product (approximately 98%) with neurotensin immunoreactivity in brain and ileum, a large molecular form of neuromedin-N… CONTINUE READING
