Neuropeptide Function in the Gastrointestinal Tract
This book assimilates and evaluates the rapidly accumulating information regarding neuropeptides in the gut, their chemistry; genetic control; processing in enteric nerves; the projections of their nerves; their actions at the tissue, cell, and molecular levels; and their roles in controlling gut motility in health and disease. Neuropeptide Function in the Gastrointestinal Tract is directed to scientists in all disciplines who work with neuropeptides, as well as physiologists interested in the neural and smooth muscle actions of neuropeptides. Gastroenterologists concerned with the control of gastrointestinal motility and the roles of neuroendocrine peptides in regulating motility in health and disease will also find this book to be an indispensable reference resource.This book contains more than 10,000 references and features new areas, including the chemistry of peptides, genetic control of peptides, syntheses, sites and mechanisms of peptide actions, and neuropeptide receptors
