Genomic organization of the FMRFamide gene in Lymnaea: multiple exons encoding novel neuropeptides
TLDR
Analysis of the right internal parietal nerve using mass spectrometry showed that the novel peptide SKPYMRFamide was cleaved from the precursor, suggesting a physiological function in the CNS.
A comparison of the synaptic proteome in human chronic schizophrenia and rat ketamine psychosis suggest that prohibitin is involved in the synaptic pathology of schizophrenia
TLDR
Two-dimensional gel electrophoresis is employed in conjunction with mass spectrometry to characterize and compare the synaptic proteomes of the human left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex in chronic schizophrenia and of the cerebral cortex of rats treated subchronically with ketamine.
Processing and targeting of a molluscan egg-laying peptide prohormone as revealed by mass spectrometric peptide fingerprinting and peptide sequencing.
TLDR
Fingerprinting by matrix-assisted laser desorption mass spectrometry of peptides in the commissure demonstrated the presence of all sequenced peptides and, in addition, could identify two other peptides derived from pro-CDCH-1, the beta 1- and beta 3-peptides.
Amino acid sequence of the small cadmium-binding protein (MP II) from Nereis diversicolor (annelida, polychaeta). Evidence for a myohemerythrin structure.
TLDR
The fact that iron, which normally binds to myohemerythrin, is not found to be associated with the cadmium-binding protein metalloprotein II in cad mium-exposed animals could be the result of the complete abolition of the iron-binding capacity of the protein due to the binding of cadmiam.
LFRFamides: a novel family of parasitation‐induced ‐RFamide neuropeptides that inhibit the activity of neuroendocrine cells in Lymnaea stagnalis
TLDR
It is concluded that up‐regulation of inhibitory LFRFamide neuropeptides during parasitation probably reflects an evolutionary adaptation that allows endoparasites to suppress host metabolism and reproduction in order to fully exploit host energy recourses.
