Effect of beta-casomorphins on intestinal propulsion in the guinea-pig colon.

Abstract

beta-Casomorphins are a family of opioid peptides originally isolated from beta-casein. In view of a possible physiological significance of these milk-derived compounds, the effects of bovine beta-casomorphin-5 (beta-CM-5), beta-casomorphin-4 (beta-CM-4) and D-Ala2-beta-casomorphin-4-NH2 (D-Ala2-beta-CM-4-NH2) have been investigated on the peristaltic… (More)
