Secondary Information

Protein Function Suppresses food intake, delays gastric emptying and decreases heat-induced edema. Might represent an endogenous ligand for maintaining homeostasis after stress
Biochemical Properties The C-terminal sequence of both human and mouse Ucn III peptides contains a pair of basic residues, RK for the human and KK for the mouse, immediately preceded by a glycine, presumed to be involved in C-terminal amidation.
