Abstract. In addition to the relatively well established role of corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) and arginine-vasopressin (AVP) in the mediation of the stress response, there is reason to believe that bombesin-like peptides (BN-LPs) may also contribute to the mediation or integration of these responses and thus might be considered as putative 'stress peptides'. This review provides evidence supporting this contention by showing that (i) BN-LPs are present at brain sites known to be… Expand
Role of gastrin-releasing peptide and neuromedin B in anxiety and fear-related behavior
TLDR
Data suggest that NMB and GRP do affect the stress response, however, whereas NMB manipulations affected both anxiety and fear responses, GRP alterations selectively affected fear-related responses. Expand
Effects of intracerebral ventricular administration of gastrin-releasing peptide and its receptor antagonist RC-3095 on learned fear responses in the rat
TLDR
The role(s) of GRP and its receptor antagonist (D-Tpi6, Leu13 psi[CH2NH]-Leu14) BB((6-14)) (RC-3095) in fear-related responses using two animal models of conditioned fear are characterized to provide further evidence that GRP is involved in conditioned fear responses. Expand
Impact of repeated stressor exposure on the release of corticotropin-releasing hormone, arginine-vasopressin and bombesin-like peptides at the anterior pituitary
TLDR
The sustained peptidergic alterations observed in the chronically stressed rats may have implications for the development of these stressor-related disorders. Expand
Hypothalamic gastrin-releasing peptide receptor mediates an antidepressant-like effect in a mouse model of stress.
TLDR
It is found that stressed mice showed significant reductions in locomotion, food intake/body weight, and sucrose preference; these reduced parameters indicated a state of anhedonia, suggesting that GRPR may be implicated in depression. Expand
The role of gastrin-releasing peptide on conditioned fear: differential cortical and amygdaloid responses in the rat
TLDR
These results illustrate that the GRP system can significantly affect the expression of learned fear, and some of the relevant brain sites mediating these effects include the PrL, IL and the CeA, and such effects may be dependent upon whether responses were evoked by environmental contextual fear cues or by specific auditory cues that were explicitly paired with an aversive stimulus. Expand
Effects of gastrin-releasing peptide agonist and antagonist administered to the basolateral nucleus of the amygdala on conditioned fear in the rat
TLDR
It appears that manipulation of GRP at the BLA may influence the expression of learned fear and that these effects preferentially influence contextual versus cue-dependent emotional responses. Expand
Gastrin-releasing peptide receptor signaling in the integration of stress and memory
TLDR
The role of GRP/GRPR as a system mediating both stress responses and the formation and expression of memories for fearful events is reviewed, serving as an important component of the set of neurobiological systems underlying the enhancement of memory storage by aversive information. Expand

TLDR
A potential neurocrine or an endocrine mode of action for these peptides requires further investigation. Expand
Bombesin-like peptides and associated receptors within the brain: distribution and behavioral implications
TLDR
BB-like peptides activate the sympathetic nervous system and appear to modulate stress, fear and anxiety responses, and globally these peptidergic systems may serve in an integrative or homeostatic function. Expand
A Stress-Related Peptide Bombesin Centrally Induces Frequent Urination through Brain Bombesin Receptor Types 1 and 2 in the Rat
TLDR
It is suggested that brain bombesin and BB receptors are involved in facilitation of the rat micturition reflex to induce bladder overactivity, which is independent of the sympathoadrenomedullary outflow modulation. Expand

Are bombesin-like peptides involved in the mediation of stress response?
TLDR
Data indicate the BN-like peptides may play a role in the mediation and/or modulation of response to stress. Expand
Anorectic action of bombesin requires receptor for corticotropin-releasing factor but not for oxytocin.
TLDR
The present experiments support the contention that bombesin partly mediates its feeding-suppressant effects through interactions with CRF, and the specificity of this interaction is supported by the lack of interaction betweenBombesin and/or CRF with oxytocin. Expand
Central Bombesin Activates the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis
TLDR
Results suggest that BN-like peptides may regulate certain hypothalamic and extrahypothalamic circuits, including the HPA axis, by affecting regional utilization of ir-CRH and ir-AVP, and/or by provoking the release of these peptides at the Me/Arc, thus increasing their availability downstream at the anterior pituitary and increasing circulating ACTH and corticosterone levels.

Role of neuromedins in the regulation of adrenocortical function

TLDR
Current data on the synthesis and mechanism of action of neuromedins on hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis will be presented and suggests their involvement in the regulation of growth, structure and function of the adrenal cortex. Expand
Aversive and Appetitive Events Evoke the Release of Corticotropin-Releasing Hormone and Bombesin-Like Peptides at the Central Nucleus of the Amygdala
TLDR
Results indicate that either food ingestion is interpreted as a “stressful” event by certain neural circuits involving the central amygdala or that the CRH- and BN-related peptidergic systems may serve a much broader role than previously envisioned. Expand
Regulation of ingestion by CRF and bombesin-like peptides: distinct meal-related peptide level changes.
TLDR
Site-specific fluctuations of BN and CRF in relationship to the animal's feeding status are demonstrated for the first time and suggest that these peptides may play a role in the regulation of food intake. Expand
Effects of central neuromedin B and related peptides on blood glucose
TLDR
The data indicate that at equimolar doses (0.31 nM) NB analogues elevate blood glucose with a lower efficacy than Bn, but NB-32 appears more potent and efficacious than the other NB congeners used. Expand
