Secondary Information

Protein Function Endothelin-1 plays an important role in the pathogenesis of immune-mediated CNS demyelinating diseases by promoting immune responses.ET-1-mediated cellular functions play a critical role in normal pregnancy, preterm birth and uterine leiomyoma.
Biochemical Properties The C-terminal hydrophobic conserved sequence of ET binds to the ET receptors and the N-terminal variable region determines the binding affinity to the receptors.
Significance in milk may play a paracrine regulatory role in bovine luteal function and propose a novel role for this peptide in mediating PGF2alpha-induced luteal regression.
