Caerulein and its analogues: neuropharmacological properties.

The decapeptide from the frog Hyla caerulea, caerulein (caerulein diethylammonium hydrate, ceruletide, CER) is chemically closely related to the C-terminal octapeptide of cholecystokinin (CCK-8). Like CCK-8, CER and some of its analogues produce many behavioural effects in mammals: inhibition of intake of food and water; antinociception; sedation; catalepsy; ptosis, antistereotypic, anticonvulsive and tremorolytic effects; inhibition of self-stimulation. Effects of CER in man comprise sedation, satiety, changes in mood, analgesia and antipsychotic effects. A modulation of central dopaminergic functions appears to be one possible mechanism of CER and its analogues. A common denominator for all effects of CER is, at present, not evident.[1]
