Sample text

Despite pharmacological evidence of amylin sensitivity in several peripheral tissues, selective amylin binding outside of the brain is observed only in the renal cortex. The newly designated amylinomimetic drug class was defined on the basis of its unique pharmacology prior to the molecular characterization of amylin receptors. Currently, the class includes any agent that acts as an agonist at characterized amylin receptors. Several peptides, typically analogs of truncated salmon calcitonin, have been developed as potent and selective amylin antagonists and have been useful in identifying amylinergic responses.
