...Aart Jan van der Lely Background: A growing body of literature has profiled the complex identities and interactions of ghrelin analogues and their known and unknown receptors, which constitute the ghrelin system. In humans, acylated ghrelin (AG) induces a rapid rise in glucose and insulin levels...

...J.-P. Chanoine Exogenous administration of ghrelin increases caloric intake and stimulates growth hormone (GH) secretion, two effects that are mediated through binding of ghrelin to the GH secretagogue receptor (GHS-R). In addition, ghrelin is thought to inhibit adipogenesis by GHS-R-independent...

... of the orphan GPCR, i.e. a GPCR with no known natural ligand, until we purified its endogenous ligand from rat stomach and named it ‘ghrelin’. Ghrelin is a 28-amino-acid peptide, in which the serine 3 is modified by an n-octanoic acid and this modification is essential for ghrelin’s activity. The discovery...
