Quick Reference


A neuropeptide (11 aa) with potent cardiovascular effects, the endogenous ligand for the orphan G-protein-coupled receptor, GPR14, that is functionally coupled to calcium mobilization. Its sequence is strongly conserved among different species and has structural similarity to somatostatin. Urotensin I in other species is homologous to urocortin.
