Differences in Action of PACAP-27 and PACAP-38 on Guinea Pig Gallbladder Smooth Muscle Using Synthetic C-terminally Modified PACAP Peptides


Pituitary adenylate cyclase activating polypeptide (PACAP) occurs in two bioactive forms, PACAP-38 and PACAP-27 that have identical N-terminal sequences but differ by the presence of a C-terminal 11 residue elongation in the former. Although VIP and PACAP have several similar biological actions due to their amino acid sequence similarity, we have found that… (More)
