Characterization of a cDNA encoding a precursor of Carassius RFamide, structurally related to a mammalian prolactin‐releasing peptide
Isolation and characterization of a novel bioactive peptide, Carassius RFamide (C-RFa), from the brain of the Japanese crucian carp.
A novel bioactive peptide with the C-terminal RFamide was isolated from the brain of the Japanese crucian carp by using the intestine of the fish as the bioassay system and it was designated Carassius RFamide (C-RFa).
Fishy tales of prolactin-releasing peptide.
Two S-Iamide Peptides, AKSGFVRIamide and VSSFVRIamide, Isolated from an Annelid, Perinereis vancaurica.
Two S-Iamide peptides were isolated from a polychaete annelid and evoked rhythmic contractions in the esophagus of Perinereis with a threshold as low as 10-10- 10-9 M, suggesting that the peptides may be involved in the regulation of gut motility of the animal.
Prolactin-releasing peptide is essential to maintain the prolactin level and osmotic balance in freshwater teleost fish
An analysis of inputs to ON-OFF amacrine cells in the carp retina with kynurenic acid.
Results indicated that off-pathways are selectively suppressed by 0.5 mM Kyn at the level of receptor-bipolar synapses and demonstrated that sustained levels of ON-OFF amacrine responses are determined by a balance of inputs from on- and off-center bipolar cells.
Field potentials induced by injection of potassium ion into the frog retina: A test of current interpretations of the electroretinographic (ERG) b-wave
Identification of a novel frog RFamide and its effect on the latency of the tail-flick response of the newt.
Relationship between pollen counts of Cryptomeria japonica and Cupressaceae and the severity of allergic symptoms
It is suggested that it is important to avoid exposure to pollen, based on the regional pollen information, as well as to administer appropriate medication to patients with vernal pollinosis in Chiba Prefecture.
beta-Adrenergic receptor subtypes in melanophores of the marine gobies Tridentiger trigonocephalus and Chasmichthys gulosus.
The subtype of beta-adrenergic receptors in melanophores of the marine gobies Tridentiger trigonocephalus and Chasmichthys gulosus was studied and it was suggested that the relation between the pigment-dispersing effect of a beta- adrenergic agonist on the melanophore and the concentration of the drug follows mass action kinetics.
