Discovery of a new reproductive hormone in teleosts: pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide-related peptide (PRP).

Abstract

Pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP)-related peptide (PRP) is a peptide encoded with PACAP in the same precursor protein. Non-mammalian PRPs were previously termed growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH)-like peptide, and was regarded as the mammalian GHRH homologue in non-mammalian vertebrates until the discovery of authentic GHRH… (More)
