MTLRPgrowth hormone secretagogue receptor ligand
GHRL (Ghrelin/Obestatin Prepropeptide) is a 117 aa precursor peptide that is processed into two chains, Ghrelin (aa24-51) and Obestatin (aa76-98). The 18 kDa prepropeptide is cleaved into proGhrelin, and then further processed into mature Ghrelin by prohormone convertases. Mature Ghrelin is modified with an N-octanoyl group on serine 3 which is required for receptor binding. Ghrelin and Obestatin are predominantly synthesized in the gastric mucosa. Ghrelin plays a role in growth factor release and appetite suppression as well as many other functions in a variety of organs. Obestatin is a putative hormone that has been suggested to have opposite effects on growth factor release and appetite as Ghrelin.

Shades of Ghrelin in Weight Homeostasis The neuropeptide and gut hormone Ghrelin is an endogenous ligand for the growth hormone (GH)-secretagogue receptor (GHSR) within the central nervous system. This pathway has received a great deal of attention and heavy study within the last decade bec... Read full blog post.
Appetite and Energy: A Ghrelin Balancing Act Ghrelin is the only potent orexigenic peptide in circulation. It stimulates food intake and leads to metabolism regulation, positive energy balance, adipogenesis, and body weight gain. However, in studies using ghrelin antibodies, the physiological si...
