25647283 Plasma neurokinin B level is higher in patients with NDHT, indicating an unfavorable cardiovascular prognosis.
25153567 Amino acid substitution A63P in TAC3 gene was statistically associated with the puberty onset time in Chinese girls.
25084101 Colocalization experiments provided evidence for the presence of cocaine- and amphetamine-regulated transcript (CART) in KP-immunoreactive (IR) and perikarya and in KP-IR and NKB-IR axon varicosities.
24802197 mutations in TAC and TACR3 are not a common cause for ICPP.
23977290 SP may influence the KP and NKB secretory output via additional autocrine/paracrine mechanisms or regulate GnRH neurosecretion directly.
23875773 Copper can enter cultured astrocytoma cells and subsequently open plasma membrane calcium channels, but when bound to NKB, copper ion uptake is inhibited.
23656837 Expression of the gene encoding NKB (TAC3) is up-regulated 20-fold in leiomyomas, compared with matched myometrium.
