II treatment reduces skeletal muscle mass and function loss during atrophy and increases nonatrophying skeletal muscle mass and function.
One of the most important discoveries in the last decade in identifying the substances related to stress response is a family of peptides named corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF): urocortin

inhibits gastric emptying and food intake in mice: differential role of CRF receptor 2.
The actions of CRF (and of the related peptides urocortin
I, II, and III) are modulated by CRF-binding protein and mediated through interaction with two receptors known as excitatory G-protein-coupled receptors (i.

Levels of IL-10 and Treg lymphocytes are increased by urocortin
, an immunomodulator used in the treatment of arthritis.
Chen and his team have found, for the first time, sound evidence that three family members known as urocortin
