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

Functioni

Plays a role as a central modulator of cardiovascular and renal function and nociception. Plays also a role in energy metabolism and storage. Inhibits adrenocortical cell proliferation with minor stimulation on corticosteroid release (By similarity).By similarity
Spexin-1: Intracerebroventricular administration of the peptide induces an increase in arterial blood pressure, a decrease in both heart rate and renal excretion and delayed natriuresis. Intraventricular administration of the peptide induces antinociceptive activity. Also induces contraction of muscarinic-like stomach smooth muscles. Intraperitoneal administration of the peptide induces a reduction in food consumption and body weight. Inhibits long chain fatty acid uptake into adipocytes (By similarity). Acts as a ligand for galanin receptors GALR2 and GALR3 (PubMed:17284679, PubMed:24517231).By similarity2 Publications
Spexin-2: Intracerebroventricular administration of the peptide induces a decrease in heart rate, but no change in arterial pressure, and an increase in urine flow rate. Intraventricular administration of the peptide induces antinociceptive activity (By similarity).By similarity

Subcellular locationi

Secreted. Secretedextracellular space. Cytoplasmic vesiclesecretory vesicle
Note: Secreted via the classical ER/Golgi-dependent pathway into the extracellular medium largely as a full-length protein without the signal peptide, and not as a hydrolyzed and amidated peptide (PubMed:19193193 and PubMed:17284679). Localized extracellularly surrounding the villous trophoblastic cells. Detected in the serum.
