[Research] A research paper reported by Professor Kazuyoshi Ukena was chosen for the Endocrine Society's thematic issue Neuroendocrinology 2018

A research paper reported by Professor Kazuyoshi Ukena, Graduate School of Integrated Arts and Sciences, called “Neurosecretory Protein GL, a Hypothalamic Small Secretory Protein, Participates in Energy Homeostasis in Male Mice”, was chosen for the Endocrine Society's thematic issue on Neuroendocrinology 2018.

This thematic issue is a special collection of journal articles published in 2016–2018, focused on neuroendocrinology. Curation of the collection was guided by Altmetric Attention Scores and Featured Article designations.

Professor Ukena’s report describes the characterization of precursor protein, localization, distribution, and biological action of neurosecretory protein GL (NPGL) in the mouse hypothalamus. It also elucidates how NPGL plays a role in feeding behavior and other energy homeostasis in the mouse brain.

The Endocrine Society, founded in 1916, is the world's oldest and largest active organization devoted to research on hormones and the clinical practice of endocrinology. It is a leading organization in the field and publishes four leading journals. It has more than 17,000 members from over 120 countries in the fields of medicine, molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry, physiology, and genetics.
