Background

Ghrelin is an endogenous ligand for the growth hormone secretagogue receptor and is involved in regulating growth hormone release from the pituitary. It has an appetite stimulating effect, induces adiposity, and stimulates gastric acid secretion, and it is involved in growth regulation. Ghrelin is synthesized as a preprohormone, then proteolytically processed to yield a 28 amino acid peptide. An interesting and unique modification is imposed on the hormone during synthesis in the form of an n octanoic acid bound to one of its amino acids. This modification is necessary for biologic activity.
