26536090 our data highlight that NPW modulates the CaV1.2 currents via G protein-coupled receptor 7, and the presence of it influences arterial tone.
25270269 these studies indicated an inconsistency between plasma and gastric NPW expression in response to nutrient ingestion, suggesting food induced gastric NPW expression may play a more important role locally
22826747 This review of NPW suggests that study of effects of this peptide may reveal its role in regulating feeding and energy metabolism coupled to leptin levels in the brain.
12959997 Intracerebroventricular administration of NPW23 and NPW30 to free-feeding rats suppressed dark phase and fasting-induced food intake. Possibly NPW functions as an endogenous catabolic signaling molecule in the brain.
12719537 a non-AUG translation initiation site is used to express mouse prepro-Npw
12130646 determined that non-AUG translation initiation is used to express human prepro-NPW
