Description: The neuropeptide vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) is expressed at high levels in the neurons of the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN). In the central and peripheral nervous system, vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP), a 28-amino acid neuropeptide, is released to support neuronal survival in both physiological and pathological condition. VIP can inhibit the neurodegeneration induced by the loss of neurons. The indirect protection effect is mainly mediated by glial cells through the production of neurotrophic factor(s) and inhibition of proinflammatory mediators. By remolding the structure and improving the transfer efficiency of VIP, its nerve protective function could be further improved. Its neuroprotective action and efficacy in inhibiting a broad range of inflammatory responses make VIP or related peptides becoming a novel therapeutic method to neurodegenerative disorders (NDDs).
