Two PRL-releasing peptides (PrRP20 and PrRP31) were recently identified from mammalian hypothalamus by an orphan receptor strategy, and a C-terminal RF (arginyl-phenylalamyl-) amide peptide (RFa), structurally related to mammalian PrRP, was also identified from the brain of the Japanese crucian carp (C-RFa) by an intestine-contracting assay. However, to date there have been no reported studies that have examined the PRL-releasing effects of RFa in fish. In the present study we determined the… CONTINUE READING
