01/31/1991 - "These results explain previously observed differences in the Beta-cell tropin-like biological activity in plasma from lean and obese animals, and support the hypothesis that the peptide has a role in the development of hyperinsulinaemia and obesity."
12/01/1984 - "The possible significance of beta-cell-tropin in obesity is discussed."
12/01/1981 - "The characterization of beta-cell-tropin and its relation to hyperinsulinaemia in obesity."
06/01/1993 - "The neurointermediate pituitary peptide beta-cell tropin (BCT) has potent insulin-releasing and lipogenic properties and is elevated in obesity and type-2 diabetes. "
06/01/1992 - "The fasting plasma concentration of the pituitary peptide beta-cell tropin [beta-CT, adrenocorticotropic hormone-(22-39)] was measured in 17 rhesus monkeys from a colony known to develop spontaneous obesity. "

06/01/1992 - "Correlation between plasma beta-cell tropin concentrations and body weight in obese rhesus monkeys."
01/01/1987 - "In the present investigations, these animals have been studied in relation to the influence of low- and high-energy diets on body weight, plasma insulin and blood glucose levels, and on insulin secretion from the perfused pancreas and the secretion of corticotropin-like intermediate lobe peptide (CLIP, ACTH18-39) and the insulin secretagogue beta-cell-tropin (beta-CT, ACTH22-39) from the pituitary neurointermediate lobe.
