  2. 2. Evolutionary Analysis of the Insulin-Relaxin Gene Family from the Perspective of Gene and Genome Duplication Events

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Robert Piotr Olinski; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : Neurosciences; insulin; relaxin; insulin-like protein; gene duplication; paralogous region; Ciona intestinalis; conserved synteny; ortholog; Drosophila melanogaster; Neurovetenskap;

    Abstract : Paralogs arise by duplications and belong to families. Ten paralogs (insulin; IGF-1 and -2; INSL3-6 and 3-relaxins) constitute the human insulin-relaxin family. The aim of this study was to outline the duplications that gave rise to the vertebrate insulin-relaxin genes and the chromosomal regions in which they reside. READ MORE

  3. 3. Structure and function of relaxins

    University dissertation from Växjö, Kalmar : Linneaus University Press

    Author : Linda M. Haugaard-Kedström; Johan Rosengren; Torleif Härd; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; relaxin; insulin-like peptide; peptide hormone; peptide synthesis and NMR; Organic Chemistry; Organisk kemi;

    Abstract : The relaxin/insulin superfamily is a group of peptide hormones that consists of ten members in human, namely relaxins 1-3, insulin-like peptides (INSL) 3-6, insulin and insulin-like growth factors (IGF) I-II. These peptides have various functions in the body, such as regulating growth, blood glucose levels,  collagen metabolism, germ cell maturation and appetite. READ MORE
