２．Identification of Novel Biologically Active Peptides
We have identified several important peptides, such as endothelins, CGRP, and orexins. We will further challange to idenitify novel biologically
|1.Research on Neuropeptides
Our laboratory identifies and characterizes the physiological functions
of novel neuropeptides, such as orexins and neuropeptide B.
We are particularly interested in neuropeptides involved in the physiological
regulation of essential bodily functions in mammals, such as circulation,
appetite, and sleep.
We utilize molecular biological, molecular genetical, phamacological, anatomical,
and electrophysiological tequniques to examine complex ife-sustaining physiological
processes, such as emotion, feeding, and sleep.
