The discovery is presented that polyadenylated mRNAs encoding dermal granular gland peptides are present in defensive skin secretions, stabilized by endogenous nucleic acid-binding amphipathic peptides, which has important implications in conservation of biodiversity within this threatened vertebrate taxon.

Novel bradykinins and their precursor cDNAs from European yellow-bellied toad (Bombina variegata) skin.
Two novel bradykinin-related peptides, identified by a systematic sequencing study of peptides in the defensive skin secretion of the yellow-bellied toad, Bombina variegata, are the first amphibian skin brady Kinins to exhibit amino acid substitutions at the Pro3 position of the bradykinsin nonapeptide.
