octadecaneuropeptide derived from diazepam binding inhibitor (DBI): Biological activity and presence in rat brain

Abstract

An endogenous brain neuropeptide with 104 amino acid residues that modulates y-aminobutyric acid receptor function was termed DBI because it displaces diazepam from its specific brain binding sites. Tryptic digestion of DBI generates an octadecaneuropeptide (ODN) that is more potent than the parent compound in the displacement of specifically bound 13-[3H… (More)
