|Other Names||Neuropeptide W, Preproprotein L8, hPPL8, Neuropeptide W-23, NPW23, hL8, Neuropeptide W-30, NPW30, hL8C, NPW, PPL8, PPNPW|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||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.|
|Tissue Location||Detected at high levels in the substantia nigra, fetal kidney and trachea; at lower levels in testis, uterus, ovary and placenta. Not detectable in many regions of the central nervous system. Also detected at high levels in lymphoblastic leukemia and colorectal adenocarcinoma|

NPW is processed into 23- and 30-amino acid neuropeptides that bind and activate two G-protein coupled receptors in the central nervous system. The neuropeptides have been shown to enhance cortisol secretion from adrenal cells through the adenylate cyclase/protein kinase A signaling cascade. The preproprotein is translated using a non-AUG initiation codon that is inferred from analyses of the mouse ortholog. [provided by RefSeq].
