A glia-derived acetylcholine-binding protein that modulates synaptic transmission
A molecular and cellular mechanism by which glial cells release AChBP in the synaptic cleft is described, and a model for how they actively regulate cholinergic transmission between neurons in the central nervous system is proposed.

The cloning of a neuropeptide Y‐receptor from the brain of the snail Lymnaea stagnalis is described, and an active peptide was purified to homogeneity, analysed by mass spectrometry and amino acid sequence determination, and turned out to be a LymNAea homologue of neuropeptic Y.
The sorLA cytoplasmic domain interacts with GGA1 and ‐2 and defines minimum requirements for GGA binding
Functional Implications of Neurotransmitter Expression during Axonal Regeneration: Serotonin, But Not Peptides, Auto-Regulate Axon Growth of an Identified Central Neuron
The data suggest that auto-released serotonin is inhibitory to CGC neurite outgrowth in vitro, and during regeneration in vivo, serotonin release might fine-tune axon guidance and branching by inducing local collapse responses in extending neurites.
A novel G protein-coupled receptor mediating both vasopressin- and oxytocin-like functions of Lys-conopressin in Lymnaea stagnalis
Cloning, Characterization, and Expression of a G-Protein-Coupled Receptor from Lymnaea stagnalis and Identification of a Leucokinin-Like Peptide, PSFHSWSamide, as Its Endogenous Ligand
This Lymnaeareceptor, PSFHSWSamide, is the first example of a leucokinin-like neuropeptide receptor, representing a new subfamily of G-protein-coupled neuropePTide receptors.

This study provides the first direct evidence that isolated axons (in the absence of the soma) can intrinsically synthesize and functionally integrate a membrane-bound receptor protein from an axonally injected mRNA.
