Melanotrope Secretory Cycle is Regulated by Physiological Inputs via the Hypothalamus
Previously, it has been shown that background color conditions regulate the overall activity of the frog intermediate lobe by varying the proportions of the two subtypes of melanotropes existing in the gland, the highly ...
Endocrinología celular y molecular
(Universidad de Córdoba, 2009)
El correcto funcionamiento y homeostasis del organismo requieren un control de la secreción hormonal, cuyos defectos producen graves desórdenes endocrinos y metabólicos. Esta regulación mediada por la interacción ...
The Somatostatin Analogue Octreotide Inhibits Growth of Small Intestine Neuroendocrine Tumour Cells
(Public Library Of Science (PLOS), 2012)
Octreotide is a widely used synthetic somatostatin analogue that significantly improves the management of neuroendocrine tumours (NETs). Octreotide acts through somatostatin receptors (SSTRs). However, the molecular mechanisms ...
A Novel Human Ghrelin Variant (In1-Ghrelin) and Ghrelin-O-Acyltransferase Are Overexpressed in Breast Cancer: Potential Pathophysiological Relevance
(Public Library Of Science (PLOS), 2011)
The human ghrelin gene, which encodes the ghrelin and obestatin peptides, contains 5 exons (Ex), with Ex1-Ex4 encoding a 117 amino-acid (aa) preproprotein that is known to be processed to yield a 28-aa (ghrelin) and/or a ...
Role of Endogenous Cortistatin in the Regulation of Ghrelin System Expression at Pancreatic Level under Normal and Obese Conditions
(Public Library Of Science (PLOS), 2013)
Ghrelin-system components [native ghrelin, In1-ghrelin, Ghrelin-O-acyltransferase enzyme (GOAT) and receptors (GHS-Rs)] are expressed in a wide variety of tissues, including the pancreas, where they exert different ...
La ecoinnovación en el sector agroalimentario: ¿qué puede aportar el Campus?

In1-ghrelin splicing variant is overexpressed in pituitary adenomas and increases their aggressive features
Pituitary adenomas comprise a heterogeneous subset of pathologies causing serious comorbidities, which would benefit from identification of novel, common molecular/cellular biomarkers and therapeutic targets. The ghrelin ...
Ghrelin-O-Acyltransferase (GOAT) Enzyme as a Novel Potential Biomarker in Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Objectives: The association between the presence and alterations of the components of the ghrelin system and the development and progression of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) is still controversial and remains unclear. Methods: ...
Clinical Utility of Ghrelin-O-Acyltransferase (GOAT) Enzyme as a Diagnostic Tool and Potential Therapeutic Target in Prostate Cancer
Recent data suggested that plasma Ghrelin O-Acyl Transferase enzyme (GOAT) levels could represent a new diagnostic biomarker for prostate cancer (PCa). In this study, we aimed to explore the diagnostic and prognostic/agg ...
