FMRFamide-gated Na+ channel (FaNaC) is the only known peptide-gated ion channel, which belongs to the epithelial Na+ channel/degenerin (ENaC/DEG) family. We have cloned a putative FaNaC from the Aplysia kurodai CNS library using PCR, and examined its characteristics in Xenopus oocytes. A. kurodai FaNaC (AkFaNaC) comprised with 653 amino acids, and the(More)
Aplysia Mytilus inhibitory peptide-related peptides (AMRPs) are multiple hexapeptides coded on a single precursor. By comparing the AMRP precursors of two species of Aplysia (Aplysia californica and Aplysia kurodai), we found that there are substantial numbers of species-specific AMRPs. We next compared the function of AMRPs on the anterior aorta between A.(More)
