This book provides the most up-to-date information on the ever-growing class of peptides with high biological activity, which function as hormones or neurotransmitters and have analogous structures. These peptides include the Vasoactive Intestinal Peptide-(VIP), the Pituitary Adenylate Cyclase-Activating Polypeptides (PACAP 38 and PACAP 27), the Peptide Histidyi-Isoleucylamide and the Histidyl-Methionine Peptide (PHI and PHM), Helodermin, Helospectin, the Growth Hormone Releasing Factor (GRF), Glucagon, the Glucagon-like Peptides I and 11, Oxyntomodulin, Glicentin and Secretin. Selection, organization and special subject matter: The contributors to this volume who are leading experts in their fields, present a valuable synopsis of the significant research in the transduction of the peptide signals, and how it helps to maintain the essential environment for cellular functions and adaptation. Contributions are organized around the molecular systems involved in the normal and altered functions of the central nervous system, the endocrine systems and cellular proliferation. In addition, the book identifies potential sites to be targeted for drug design and therapeutic development in the domain of biosynthesis, inflammation and cardiovascular and digestive diseases. This book draws together information from widely-scattered literature and thus obviates the need for time-consuming research on the part of the readers. It is aimed at an international audience of pharmacologists, physiologists, clinical investigators, biochemists and researchers.
