The paralemniscal area, situated between the pontine reticular formation and the lateral lemniscus in the pontomesencephalic tegmentum contains some tuberoinfundibular peptide of 39 residues (TIP39)-expressing neurons. In the present study, we measured a 4 times increase in the level of TIP39 mRNA in the paralemniscal area of lactating mothers as opposed to nulliparous females and mothers deprived of pups using real-time RT-PCR. In situ hybridization histochemistry and immunolabeling… 

Preoptic Inputs and Mechanisms that Regulate Maternal Responsiveness

The idea that chromatin remodelling during mother–infant interactions mediates the long‐term alterations in gene expression that sustain maternal responding is explored and summarise gene expression changes in the mPOA that have been linked to maternal behaviour.

A Thalamo-Hypothalamic Pathway That Activates Oxytocin Neurons in Social Contexts in Female Rats

Neurons in the posterior intralaminar complex of the thalamus (PIL), which contain tuberoinfundibular peptide 39 (TIP39) and are activated by pup exposure in lactating mothers, provide a candidate projection that contributes to the activation of oxytocin neurons in social contexts.

Somatostatin-Somatostatin Receptor 2 Signaling Mediates LH Pulse Suppression in Lactating Rats.

Findings suggest the suckling-induced activation of SST-SSTR2 signaling mediates, at least in part, the suppression of pulsatile LH secretion during lactation in rats, probably via the indirect effects of S ST on KNDy neurons.

Involvement of nNOS in the antinociceptive activity of melatonin in inflammatory pain at the level of sensory neurons.

Results suggest that nNOS may play an active role in both peripheral and central processing of nociceptive information following orofacial inflammatory pain induction, and the regulatory effect of melatonin on nN OS in inflammatory pain may have potential implications for the development of novel analgesic strategies.

Behavioural actions of tuberoinfundibular peptide 39 (parathyroid hormone 2)

This peptide neuromodulator system has been extensively investigated over the past 20 years including its behavioural actions, such as its role in the control of nociception, fear and fear incubation, anxiety and depression‐like behaviours, and maternal and social behaviours.

Neuroendocrine regulation of lactation and milk production.

The reduction in secretion of the adipocyte hormone, leptin, a hallmark of negative energy balance, may be an important endocrine signal to hypothalamic systems that integrate lactation-associated food intake with neuroendocrine systems.

Molecular insights into differentiated ligand recognition of the human parathyroid hormone receptor 2

The structure of PTH2R bound to its endogenous ligand, tuberoinfundibular peptide (TIP39), and a heterotrimeric Gs protein reveals that TIP39 adopts a unique loop conformation at the N terminus and deeply inserts into the orthosteric ligand-binding pocket in the transmembrane domain, which provides structural insights into ligand specificity and receptor activation of class B1 GPCRs.

Tuberoinfundibular peptide of 39 amino acids



Tuberoinfundibular peptide of 39 residues is activated during lactation and participates in the suckling-induced prolactin release in rat.

It is found that TIP39 mRNA and peptide expression levels are markedly elevated in the posterior intralaminar complex of the thalamus (PIL) of lactating dams, one of the three locations of Tip39-containing cell bodies in the brain.

The medial paralemniscal nucleus and its afferent neuronal connections in rat

The afferent neuronal connections of the MPL suggest its involvement in auditory and reproductive functions and is characterized cytoarchitectonically on coronal, sagittal, and horizontal serial sections.

Anatomical and physiological evidence for involvement of tuberoinfundibular peptide of 39 residues in nociception

The data suggest that TIP39 released from supraspinal fibers potentiates aspects of nociception within the spinal cord.

Periaqueductal gray and the region of the paralemniscal area have different functions in the control of vocalization in the neotropical bat, Phyllostomus discolor

Periaqueductal gray and paralemniscal area interact differently with the final common pathway for vocalization, and may represent different functional organization in the vocal controlling pathways for communication calls and echolocation calls.

Afferent connections of the parvocellular subparafascicular thalamic nucleus in the rat: Evidence for functional subdivisions

The hypothesis that medial and lateral subdivisions of SPFp receive different sets of afferents and that these differences contribute to the separate functional roles of the two subdivisions is tested.

Localization and Chemical Characterization of the Audiogenic Stress Pathway

It has been shown by immunostaining that TIP39‐containing MPL and SPF neurons express a newly discovered neuropeptide, tuberoinfundibular peptide of 39 residues (TIP39), which is present in a fine neuronal network in the PVN.

Tuberoinfundibular peptide of 39 residues modulates the mouse hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis via paraventricular glutamatergic neurons

The present data indicate that the TIP39 ligand/PTH2 receptor system provides facilitatory regulation of the hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis via hypothalamic glutamatergic neurons and that it may regulate other neuroendocrine systems by a similar mechanism.
