Injection of Ascaris FMRFamide-like (AF) peptides and peptides encoded by genes in Caenorhabditis elegans were analyzed for effects on locomotion, body waveforms, and cAMP concentrations in adult female Ascaris suum. Injection of AF1 (KNEFIRFamide) or AF2 (KHEYLRFamide) inhibited the propagation of locomotory waves and reduced the number of waveforms… CONTINUE READING
