Target Data

Function Endogenous ligand for APJ. Apelin-36 dissociates more hardly than (pyroglu)apelin-13 from APJ. The oral intake in the colostrum and the milk could have a role in the modulation of the immune responses in neonates. May also have a role in the central control of body fluid homeostasis by influencing AVP release and drinking behavior.
