Bombesin (BN)-like peptides/neurotransmitters mediate a broad range of physiological funtions in the gastrointestinal tract and the central nervous system through binding to their specific, high-affinity mammalian bombesin receptors. This family of heptahelical, G-protein coupled receptors includes the gastrin-releasing peptide receptor (GRP-R, or bb2), neuromedin B receptor (NMB-R, or bb1), and the bombesin receptor subtype 3 (BRS-3, or bb3). The tissue distribution of BRS-3 is quite… CONTINUE READING
