Protein

Neuropeptide W

Gene

NPW

Organism
Homo sapiens (Human)
Status
Reviewed - Annotation score: 4 out of 5- Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Plays a regulatory role in the organization of neuroendocrine signals accessing the anterior pituitary gland. Stimulates water drinking and food intake. May play a role in the hypothalamic response to stress (By similarity). NPW23 activates GPR7 and GPR8 more efficiently than NPW30.By similarity
