NCBI Summary for Penk
neuropeptide hormone; plays a role in the responses to stress and pain perception [RGD]
UniProt Comments for Penk
PENK: Met- and Leu-enkephalins compete with and mimic the effects of opiate drugs. They play a role in a number of physiologic functions, including pain perception and responses to stress. PENK(114-133) and PENK(237-258) increase glutamate release in the striatum. PENK(114-133) decreases GABA concentration in the striatum. Belongs to the opioid neuropeptide precursor family.
