OBJECTIVE To determine the frequency with which scleroderma (systemic sclerosis; SSc) recurs in families and the familial relative risk (lambda) in the US. METHODS Family histories of SSc were… Expand
Amino acid sequence of the minor isomorph of the crustacean hyperglycemic hormone (CHH-II) of the Mexican crayfish Procambarus bouvieri (Ortmann): Presence of a d-amino acid
The primary structure of the neurohormone crustacean hyperglycemic hormone (CHH-II) was determined by means of enzymatic digestions, manual Edman degradation, and mass spectrometry. CHH-II is a 72… Expand
Novel alpha-conotoxins from Conus spurius and the alpha-conotoxin EI share high-affinity potentiation and low-affinity inhibition of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors.
alpha-Conotoxins from marine snails are known to be selective and potent competitive antagonists of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors. Here we describe the purification, structural features and… Expand
Matrix metalloproteases from chondrocytes generate an antiangiogenic 16 kDa prolactin
The 16 kDa N-terminal fragment of prolactin (16K-prolactin) is a potent antiangiogenic factor. Here, we demonstrate that matrix metalloproteases (MMPs) produced and secreted by chondrocytes generate… Expand
Latent phenoloxidase activity and N-terminal amino acid sequence of hemocyanin from Bathynomus giganteus, a primitive crustacean.

N-terminal amino acid sequences for the two hemocyanin subunits from the deep-sea crustacean Bathynomus giganteus have been determined by Edman degradation, providing the first sequence information… Expand
FMRFamide and related peptides in the phylum mollusca
FMRFamide is one of the well-known peptides studied within the phylum Mollusca. It was first isolated from the clam Macrocallista nimbosa during the end of the 1960s. Since then, a number of reports… Expand
Identification, purification and initial characterization of the vitellogenesis-inhibiting hormone from the Mexican crayfish Procambarus bouvieri (Ortmann)
Abstract 1. 1. By means of a single step of RP-HPLC on μBondapak-Phenyl column, a neuropeptid with vutellogenesis-inhibiting hormone (VIH) activity was isolated from a crude extract of sinus glands… Expand
A neuropeptide family from the sinus gland of the Mexican crayfish, Procambarus bouvieri (Ortmann)
Abstract The main neuroendocrine axis of crustaceans is constituted by the brain, medulla terminalis X-organ (MTXO) -sinus gland (SG) system. A variety of hormonal peptides are synthesized in the… Expand
Adaptive radiation of venomous marine snail lineages and the accelerated evolution of venom peptide genes

- Biology, Medicine
- Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences
- 1 September 2012
An impressive biodiversity (>10,000 species) of marine snails (suborder Toxoglossa or superfamily Conoidea) have complex venoms, each containing approximately 100 biologically active, disulfide‐rich… Expand
