Neuromedin U, amidation site (IPR018070)

Short name: Neuromedin-U_amidation-site

Description

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.

The mature peptides are 8 (NmU-8) to 25 (NmU-25) residues long and is extremely well conserved with the and C-terminally Asn being amidated
