Previous studies have shown differences in the biological activity and the structure of two naturally occurring tachykinin peptides, substance P (SP, RPKPQQFFGLM-NH2) and ranatachykinin C (RTKC, HNPASFIGLM-NH2). To further understand the basis for these differences, four analogs that selectively incorporate the amino acid differences between SP and RTKC… (More)
