The buccalin-related peptides, buccalin A and buccalin B, are members of a family of cotransmitters that modulate neuromuscular transmission in Aplysia. In this study, a third buccalin-related peptide, buccalin C, was purified from neuronal elements in the accessory radula closer, a muscle involved in the animal's feeding behavior.

The myomodulin-related peptides comprise a family of cotransmitters that modulate neuromuscular signaling in the feeding system of Aplysia. In this study, cDNA clones encoding a myomodulin precursor polypeptide were isolated and characterized. This precursor contains seven different myomodulin-related peptides, one of which, myomodulin A, is present in 10(More)
