Hemocyanins are large multi-subunit copper proteins that transport oxygen in many arthropods and molluscs. Comparison of the amino acid sequence data for seven different subunits of arthropod hemocyanins from crustaceans and chelicerates shows many highly conserved residues and extensive regions of near identity. This correspondence can be matched closely(More)
Incubation of beta-endorphin with cytosolic and particulate fractions of rat brain resulted in the formation of several peptides, including gamma-endorphin [beta-endorphin-(1-17)] and beta-endorphin-(18-31), indicating the presence of enzyme activity cleaving the Leu17-Phe18 bond of beta-endorphin. An assay for this Leu-Phe cleaving activity, based on the(More)
