Galanin: effects on basal and stimulated insulin and glucagon secretion in the mouse.

Abstract

Galanin was recently demonstrated to be a neuropeptide in intrapancreatic nerves. In this study, the effects of galanin on basal and stimulated insulin and glucagon secretion in the mouse were investigated. Galanin, injected intravenously at dose levels ranging from 0.53 to 8.5 nmol kg-1, markedly lowered basal plasma insulin levels and transiently… (More)
