Neuromedin U, C-terminal (IPR008200)

Short name: NMU_C

Domain relationships



Neuromedin U (NmU) [PMID: 3239891, PMID: 1455013] is a vertebrate peptide which stimulates uterine smooth muscle contraction and causes selective vasoconstriction. Like most other active peptides, it is proteolytically processed from a larger precursor protein. The mature peptides are 8 (NmU-8) to 25 (NmU-25) residues long and C-terminally amidated.

This entry represents the sequence of the C-terminal extremity of NmU, which is extremely well conserved.
