The neuropeptide B/W receptors are members of the G-protein coupled receptor superfamily of integral membrane proteins which bind the neuropeptides B and W.[1] These receptors are predominately expressed in the CNS and have a number of functions including regulation of the secretion of cortisol.[2][3]
