An international group of experts presents the latest research on the biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, physiology, and pharmacology of the growing class of peptides that function as hormones or neurotransmitters. This includes vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP), pituitary adenylate cyclase activating peptide (PACAP), glucagon, and related peptides. Topics include the role of this family of peptides and their receptors in signal transduction mechanisms, cancer, autonomic physiology, neurobiology, cell proliferation, cell death and tissue injury, endocrinology, and neuroimmunology, along with clinical and potential therapeutic implications.
