Cholecystokinin in the central nervous system: a minireview

Neuropeptides. 1983 Oct;3(6):411-27. doi: 10.1016/0143-4179(83)90032-x.

Abstract

This review focuses on the structure, distribution, neuronal pathways, receptor binding, release, biosynthesis and degradation of CCK in the central nervous system. Other aspects of the isolation and chemistry of CCK (1), its role in satiety (2), as a hormone or neurotransmitter (3,4), and its evolution (5) have been reviewed recently.
