Galanin mRNA and peptide have been detected widely in the central and peripheral nervous systems, in endocrine tissues such as the hy- pothalamus, anterior pituitary, pancreas, adrenal, thyroid and para- thyroid glands, and in developing bone (Rokaeus 1994; Xu et al. 1996). Physiological studies suggest that galanin modulates neu- roendocrine systems by affecting satiety, the development of Mammalian Genome Springer Journals
