    Abstract : This thesis is devoted to the deeper understanding of the molecular details of the interaction between the neuropeptide galanin and its target protein, the G-protein coupled 7TM galanin receptor. The enzymatic control of galanin degradation and second messenger systems triggered by galanin receptor activation are also studied. READ MORE

    Abstract : In the nervous system galanin primarily displays a modulatory role. The galaninergic system consists of a number of bioactive peptides with a highly plastic expression pattern and three different receptors. The lack of receptor subtype selective ligands and antibodies have severely hampered the charac-terization of this system. READ MORE

    Abstract : Galanin is a 29/30 amino acid long bioactive peptide discovered over 30 years ago when C-terminally amidated peptides were isolated from porcine intestines. The name galanin originates from a combination of the first and last amino acids - G from glycine and the rest from alanine. READ MORE
