However, in the new study published in the journal Cell, the team found that chronic isolation leads to an increase in Tac2 gene expression and the production of a neuropeptide called neurokinin B (NkB) throughout the brain.
Kisspeptin and neurokinin B have an important role in regulation of puberty.
Kisspeptin and neurokinin B levels were higher in the idiopathic CPP and PT groups compared to controls.
Kisspeptin, neurokinin B, and dynorphin A (KNDy) are co-expressed in neurons of the arcuate nucleus of the hypothalamus and they play an important role in regulating pulsatile GnRH secretion (1).
TACs are a family of closely related peptides such as SP, neurokinin A, and neurokinin B, which act as neuropeptides in nonneuronal cells and noninnervated tissues [13].
Neurokinin B (endogenous ligand of TACR3) is involved in pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease by interacting with brain dopaminergic transmission [19].
The other two members are simply called neurokinin A and neurokinin B. Modulation of SP activity offered a radical new approach to the management of depression, anxiety, stress and is involved in several physiologic activities, including the vomiting reflex, defensive behavior, change in cardio-vascular tone, stimulation of salivary secretion, smooth muscle contraction and vasodilatation [3,4].
Neurokinin B (NKB) is a 10 amino acid peptide which belongs to the tachykinin family.

Scientists found that Neurokinin B plays a critical role in controlling the system that switches on the master regulator of human puberty.
Earlier, Neurokinin B was known to be present in the hypothalamus-the part of the brain that controls puberty.
In the new study, published in the journal Cell, the team found that chronic isolation leads to an increase in Tac2 gene expression and the production of a neuropeptide called neurokinin B (NkB) throughout the brain.
