Description
The Proenkephalin precursor proteins are secreted proteins belonging to the opioid neuropeptide precursor family. The proenkephalin proteins are proteolytically processed to form active secreted opioid peptides which function as ligands for the °Ù-type of opiod receptor. Proenkephalin A precursor contains Synenkephalin, Leu-enkephalin and Met-enkephalin processed active peptides while the Proenkephalin B precursor contains ÉÇ-neoendorphin, Dynorphin, Leumorphin, Leu-enkephalin and Rimorphin processed active peptides. ÉÇ-endorphin and Met-enkephalin are endogenous opiates while ACTH is crucial for adrenal gland stimulation to release cortisol. MSH increases Melanin production in melanocytes which leads to an increase in skin pigmentation. Leumorphin may be important in apoptosis prevention by being involved in the MAP-K and PI 3-K pathways.
