RNAi Effector Diversity in Nematodes
While RNA interference (RNAi) has been deployed to facilitate gene function studies in diverse helminths, parasitic nematodes appear variably susceptible. To test if this is due to inter-species…
Analysis of FMRFamide-like peptide (FLP) diversity in phylum Nematoda.
The silencing of cysteine proteases in Fasciola hepatica newly excysted juveniles using RNA interference reduces gut penetration.

Inhibitory effects of nematode FMRFamide-related peptides (FaRPs) on muscle strips fromAscaris suum
It is shown that the effects of PF1 were also dependent on external Ca++ and were reduced by the Ca++-channel blocker verapamil, observations consistent with the finding that nematode NOS is Ca++/Ca++-dependent.

Comparison of the present findings with those recorded for other digeneans suggests that muscle organisation and innervation patterns in trematodes are highly conserved.
Discovery of multiple neuropeptide families in the phylum Platyhelminthes.
Terminal Nerve-Derived Neuropeptide Y Modulates Physiological Responses in the Olfactory Epithelium of Hungry Axolotls (Ambystoma mexicanum)
It is found that axolotl NPY modulates olfactory epithelial responses evoked by l-glutamic acid, a food-related odorant, but only in hungry animals, and whole-cell patch-clamp recordings demonstrate that bath application of axolotor NPY enhances the magnitude of a tetrodotoxin-sensitive inward current, butonly in hungryAnimals.
