Proline-Rich Cytokine from Neurosecretory Granules: A New Natural Substrate for Dipeptidyl Peptidase IV

A proline-rich cytokine from neurosecretory granules of bovine neurohypophysis, 15 amino acids containing PRP-1 (Ala-Gly-Ala-Pro-Glu-Pro-Ala-Glu-Pro-Ala-Gln-Pro-Gly-Val-Tyr), had been demonstrated as a unique regulator of activity of neurons, strong antibacterial agent, and mediator of the hypothalamus-neurohypophysis-bone marrow-thymus axis, which… (More)
