Sixteen caerulein-type peptides have been isolated from the skin secretions of the Australian Blue Mountains tree frog Litoria citropa. There are four groups of these peptides. The first is based on the structure of the known neuropeptide caerulein [pEQDY(SO(3))TGWMDF-NH(2)], now renamed caerulein 1.1. Examples of peptides of the other groups are as follows: caerulein 2.1 [pEQDY(SO(3))TGAHMDF-NH(2)], caerulein 3.1 [pEQDY(SO(3))GTGWMDF-NH(2)] and caerulein 4.1 [pEQDY(SO(3))TGSHMDF-NH(2)].
