Data Sheet

Background: The human BB1 receptor (or Neuromedin B receptor NMBR) is a receptor for neuromedin-B (NMB), which is a mammalian bombesin-like peptide distributed widely in the central nervous system. The BB1 pathway is involved in the regulation of a wide variety of behaviors, such as spontaneous activity, feeding and anxiety-related behavior. A study using BB1-deficient mice suggested that dysfunction in the BB1 pathway may constitute one of the risk factors of stress vulnerability.

Application: Functional assays
