Details for messenger / hormone: NPB29

EndoNet ID: ENH00600

To link to the content of EndoNet use the EndoNet ID that is given on the detail pages in the format ENX0000, where X is a place holder for the type of the component (e. g. R for receptor or C for anatomical structure).
As URL for the linking append this ID to the detail page for this type of component.
For an hormone that would be:

http://endonet.bioinf.med.uni-goettingen.de/hormone/ENH00000

It is also possible to use the search of EndoNet to link to the right detail page. The URL should look like

http://endonet.bioinf.med.uni-goettingen.de/search/ENC00000
If the search pattern is unambigious the user is directed to the corresponding detail page.

Synonyms

  • hPPL7
  • preproprotein L7
  • neuropeptide B
  • NPB29
  • neuropeptide B-29
  • hL7C

General information

  • Endogenous ligand on GPR7 and GPR8. [1]
  • Has a C-6-brominated tryptophan residue at the N terminus. [1]
  • Implicated in regulation of body weight. [2]
  • The two forms of NPB like NPW are produced from a single precursor gene by differential proteolytic processing at two arginine residues. [3]
  • Widely expressed in the central nervous system, high levels in substantia nigra, hypothalamus, hyppocampus, spinal cord, placenta and fetal brain, lower levels in testis, uterus and ovary. [4]
