The results suggest that 5′-nucleotidase is essential for the differentiation and survival of neural cells and represents an important and critical step in the hydrolysis cascade of extracellular nucleotides.
Coelenterate Neuropeptides: Structure, Action and Biosynthesis
The biosynthetic machinery for neuropeptides in coelenterates, the lowest animal group having a nervous system, is already very efficient and similar to that of higher invertebrates, such as molluscs and insects, and vertebrates.
