Brain Peptides and Blood Pressure Control
Immunohistochemical and biochemical investigations have revealed numerous peptides within the brain. From such studies evidence supporting a role in blood pressure regulation for centrally located angiotensin, opioid peptides, substance P, neuropeptide Y, vasopressin, atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP), kinins, corticotropin releasing factor and other peptides, such as bombesin and somatostatin, has been obtained.
