The Neuropeptide Laboratory has been interested for many years in how peptide neurotransmitters and hormones are synthesized, packaged into secretory granules, moved to a site of release, stored until needed, and then released upon command. These studies lead into the areas of cell biology, enzymology, molecular biology, anatomical mapping, control of gene expression, protein-protein interactions, developmental controls over peptide expression and action, and the like.
