Bovine ghrelin, a 27 amino acid peptide, has been identified in oxyntic glands of the abomasum. It is an endogenous ligand for growth hormone secretagogue receptor and stimulates food intake and growth hormone secretion. The bovine <i>GHRL</i> gene was completely sequenced and consists of five exons and four introns. Like mouse and human GHRL genes, we found that the bovine <i>GHRL</i> gene also contains a first non-coding exon of 21 bp. The bovine <i>GHRL</i> gene codes for 116 amino aciddoi:10.5194/aab-52-79-2009 fatcat:mkws3bjcbvgx5b6r2uorkx42rq
