  • glucagon VIP family
  • vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP)/secretin/glucagon family of peptides
  • CATEGORY enzyme , regulatory

    basic FUNCTION
  • pituitary adenylyl cyclase activating polypeptide, acting as a pivotal modulator of glutamatergic regulation of the suprachiasmatic circadian clock
  • regulator of insulin genes of glucose sensing system (GLTI) and hexokinase
  • auto and paracrine function in the peri and post ovulatory events involving acute progesterone production and subsequent luteinization in periovulatory granulosa/lutein cells
  • decreasing neuronal cell death after ischemia by suppressing cytochrome C release by means of BCL2 regulation
  • participates in the processes forming the neuronal laminas in the developing cortex via the intracellular PKA pathway
  • inhibits proliferation of cortical progenitors and promotes neurogenesis
  • affects two different processes of cortical progenitors via the PKA/CREB signaling pathway acting at different times of the cell cycle, providing a novel cue for unveiling the molecular mechanisms underlying the effects of environmental factors on laminar formation during corticogenesis
  • participates in the processes forming the neuronal laminas in the developing cortex via the intracellular PKA pathway
