This comprehensive book contains the latest information on diverse biological functions of relaxin and related peptide found since the recent discovery of relaxin receptors.

The physiological relevance of IDE degradation of relaxin and related peptides remains to be determined. To date, in studies using rats with impaired IDE activity or in IDE-null mice, only insulin and Alzheimer’s beta amyloid peptide Cited by: A raft of novel clinical applications of relaxin has also been explored.

Together, these exciting developments made the time ripe for a third international conference. We were therefore delighted to welcome many colleagues, old and new, at Relaxinthe first international forum on relaxin and related peptides.

The recent identification of the receptors for both relaxin and relaxin-like factor has enabled more rigorous studies of the target tissues and mechanisms of action of these hormones. This volume contains a description of recent advances and future research and clinical possibilities in the field of relaxin and related peptides.

Since its initial isolation from the ovaries of pregnant pigs inincreasing interest in relaxin.

Relaxin belongs to the same family of hormones as insulin. Over the last decade, several relaxin-like peptides have been discovered, although the function of these peptides remains unclear.

Recent studies have revealed effects of relaxin on other systems in the body. Relaxin. Activation of Relaxin-Related Receptors by Short, Linear Peptides Derived from a Collagen-Containing Precursor. All aspects of basic biology and physiology, as well as potential clinical applications of relaxin and related peptides will be covered.

The peptide hormone relaxin has a long history as a reproductive hormone since its discovery in [4, 5]. In women, circulatory concentrations of relaxin rise in the first Cited by: Relaxin family peptide hormones in humans are represented by 7 members: three relaxin-like (RLN) and four insulin-like (INSL) subdivision into 2 classes (RLN and INSL) is based primarily on early findings, and does not reflect the evolutionary origins or physiological differences between peptides HGNC: Masatoshi Mita, in Handbook of Hormones, Abstract.

Relaxin is a peptide hormone, and is secreted during pregnancy in mammalian species. The relaxin family peptides consist of seven peptides: relaxin-1, relaxin-2 (relaxin identified only in human and apes), relaxin-3, and four insulin-like peptides (INSLs) – INSL3, INSL4, INSL5, and peptides.

Relaxin (RLX) is a small 6-kDa peptide hormone produced by the corpus luteum of the ovary, particularly during the first and second trimesters of pregnancy. Relaxin is a member of a family of peptides structurally related.

Topics to be covered in this fifth international meeting focused on relaxin and related peptides include: (1) Structure/activity relationships of relaxin and related peptides and their receptors.

The peptide hormone relaxin was first identified in Hisaw () and subsequently was determined to have a two-chain structure similar to insulin. Relaxin is highly expressed in the corpus luteum and/or placenta of mammals and has numerous essential actions during pregnancy Bathgate et al (c).In the s two human relaxin.

Together, these exciting developments made the time ripe for a third international conference. We were therefore delighted to welcome many colleagues, old and new, at Relaxinthe first international forum on relaxin and related peptides.

Goals / Objectives Relaxinwhich will be the 4th International conference on relaxin and related peptides, will be held from September 5 through Septem at Jackson Lake Lodge in Grand Teton National Park. The conference has five primary objectives.

The first is to assemble essentially all of the scientists in the world conducting research on relaxin and related peptides .Relaxin-2 is a peptide hormone structurally related to insulin, which is expressed in the placenta, decidua, prostate, and in the ovary during pregnancy.

Recombinant Relaxin-2 is a .Relaxin, in common usage, the two-chain peptide hormone H2 relaxin, which belongs to the relaxin peptide family in the insulin superfamily of hormones.

The relaxin peptide family includes six other related hormones: the insulin-like peptides H1 relaxin, INSL3, INSL4, INSL5, INSL6, and INSL7 (also known as H3 relaxin).
