Comparison of two Caenorhabditis genes encoding FMRFamide(Phe-Met-Arg-Phe-NH2)-like peptides.

Abstract

We have identified a gene encoding multiple FMRFamide-like peptides in the necromenic nematode Caenorhabditis vulgaris. This gene, Cv-flp-1, shares strong sequence homology in the coding regions with the flp-1 gene from the related free-living soil nematode C. elegans. The predicted neuropeptide precursor proteins differ by only four conservative amino acid… (More)
