Poadrenomedullin N-terminal 20 peptide (PAMP) is a hypotensive peptide derived from the precursor of adrenomedullin. We identified novel actions of proadrenomedullin N-terminal 20 peptide (PAMP) on blood glucose, food intake and gastric emptying after exogenous administration. PAMP elevated blood glucose levels after central injection in fasted mice. PAMP had affinity for bombesin (BN) receptor and the hyperglycemic effect of PAMP was blocked by a BN antagonist, indicating that the elevation of… CONTINUE READING
