General information

  • Neurokinin B and its cognate neurokinin-3 receptor are expressed more in the forebrain than in brain stem structures. [1]
  • Neurokinin B (NKB) is a neuropeptide with a vasopressor effect belonging to the tachykinin family. [2]
  • NKB secreted from the placenta during pregnancy enters both the maternal and fetal circulation. [2]
  • Neurokinin B could be involved in pregnancy haemodynamic adaptation via nitric oxide production. [3]
