Receptor subtype mediation of feeding suppression by bombesin-like peptides.


Bombesin (BN) and the related mammalian peptides gastrin-releasing peptide (GRP), neuromedin C (NMC), and neuromedin B (NMB) suppress food intake in rats. Recent studies show two distinct receptor subtypes, GRP-preferring and NMB-preferring. BN interacts equally with both subtypes raising the possibility that one or both subtypes mediate the reduction of… (More)
