General information

  • NT and NMN, two biologically active peptides acting via the same specific receptor, are both able to stimulate in vivo the proliferative activity of rat adrenocortical cells. [1]
  • ANG-II mediates the proliferogenic effect of NMN, but not that of NT. [1]
  • Prohormone convertases differentially process pro-neurotensin/neuromedin N in tissues and cell lines. [2]
