Cholecystokinin Receptors

Cholecystokinin (CCK) is a neuropeptide and gut hormone that regulates pancreatic enzyme secretion and gastrointestinal motility, and acts as a satiety signal. It is released simultaneously from intestinal cells and neurons in response to a meal. The precursor molecule prepro-CCK can be cleaved to generate a variety of biologically active forms of CCK including CCK-33, CCK-8 (CCK octapeptide), CCK-39 and CCK-58. Two CCK receptor subtypes, CCK1 and CCK2, mediate the physiological actions of CCK and the related peptide gastrin. The CCK1 receptor has a high affinity for sulfated CCK analogs, whereas the CCK2 receptor has similar affinity for sulfated and non-sulfated forms.
