26350463 results show that activation of CRH receptors by CRH ligands stimulates VEGF-A expression in intestinal epithelial cells through the cAMP/CREB pathway
26076035 The paracrine actions of Ucn3 activate a negative feedback loop that promotes somatostatin release to ensure the timely reduction of insulin secretion upon normalization of plasma glucose.
25304878 The molecular modifications of urocortin 3[36-38] led to an improved understanding of the relationship between molecular structure and biological activity of this peptide, could be further tested for possible clinical treatment of depression
25148370 Data suggest that UCN3 expression can serve as a late stage maturation/differentiation marker in beta-cells during pancreogenesis. [REVIEW]
23349753 SCP inhibits a subpopulation of PVN neurons, especially OTergic magnocellular neurons, by enhancing the activity of GIRK channels via CRF-R2
22000474 study showed that Ucn2 and Ucn3 differentially regulate the LPS-induced TNF-alpha and IL-10 expression and secretion in trophoblast explants acting through CRH-R2. Ucn3 has an anti-inflammatory effect.
21454316 These data suggest a possible involvement of urocortin 2 and Ucn 3 in the mechanisms of endometriosis.
21360527 Confirm the anti-inflammatory function of VIP, through the modulation of the expression of CRF system that impacts in a reduction of mediators with inflammatory/destructive functions.
20616367 Placental Ucn2 and Ucn3 expression is sensitive to O(2) tensions and mediated by HIF-1alpha. In preeclampsia, the increased expression of both peptides may reflect a response to the oxidative stress.
20368512 Observational study of gene-disease association, gene-environment interaction, and pharmacogenomic / toxicogenomic. (HuGE Navigator)
