GeneCards Summary for NPVF Gene
NPVF (Neuropeptide VF Precursor) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NPVF Gene
Neuropeptide RFRP-1 acts as a potent negative regulator of gonadotropin synthesis and secretion. Neuropeptides NPSF and NPVF efficiently inhibit forskolin-induced production of cAMP, but RFRP-2 shows no inhibitory activity. Neuropeptide RFRP-1 induces secretion of prolactin in rats. Neuropeptide NPVF blocks morphine-induced analgesia.
