Viene descritto l'isolamento e il chiarimento della struttura della bombesina e della alytesina due tetradecapeptidi attivi a struttura analoga presenti nella pelle fresca rispettivamente dellaBombina e dell'Alytes, anfibi europei della famiglia dei discoglossidi. I due polipeptidi manifestano azioni farmacologiche similari sulla pressione del sangue, su svariati organi a muscoli lisci, sulla secrezione gastrica e sulla glicemia. 
Aminoacid composition and sequence of litorin, a bombesin-like nonapeptide from the skin of the Australian leptodactylid frogLitoria aurea
TLDR
Gli estratti di pelle di Litoria aurea, un anfibio leptodactilide australiano, contengono 2 polipeptidi ad attività bombesinosimile, ì stato identificato come un nonapeptide avente strette analogie strutturali with la bombesina, l'alitesina e the ranatensina.
Synthesis of bombesin
Viene riportata la sintesi della piroglutamil-glutaminil-arginil-leucil-glicil-asparaginil-glutaminil-triptofanil-alanil-valil-glicil-istidil-leucil-metioninamide, un peptide identico per proprietà
A bombesin-like peptide from skin of Sanguirana varians.
Bombesin-like immunoreactivity in the avian gut and its localisation to a distinct cell type
TLDR
The distribution of a bombesin-like immunoreactive peptide in the avian gastro-intestinal tract was analysed by combined radioimmunoassay and immunocytochemistry and found that the extractable bombes in the proventriculus was found mainly in the deeper layers of the mucosa.
Targeting Itch with Ligands Selective for κ Opioid Receptors.
Several chemically diverse pruritogens, including bombesin, compound 48/80, norbinaltorphimine, and 5'-GNTI, cause rodents to scratch excessively in a stable, uniform manner and consequently provide
A novel bombesin-like peptide from skin of Rana shuchinae
TLDR
In the in vitro myotropic contraction experiment, the synthesized bombesin-RS displayed stimulating effect toward rat stomach strips, suggesting that bombes in-RS acts as agonist as most other bombesIn-related peptides do.
Substance P-, neurotensin- and bombesin-like immunoreactivities in the gill epithelium of Ciona intestinalis L.
SummarySubstance P-, neurotensin- and bombesin-like immunoreactivities were localised in some gill epithelial cells in the pharynx of Ciona intestinalis L. No immunoreactivity was obtained with
