The nervous system of the mermithid nematodeRomanomermis culicivorax was investigated at different developmental stages for the distribution of the neuropeptide FMRF-amide. An FMRF-amide-like peptide was detected by an indirect immunofluorescence technique. The peptidergic nervous system increased in complexity during development. In adults, FMRF-amide-like peptide was present in the nerve ring, cephalic papillary ganglia, cephalic nerves, amphids, ganglia posterior to the nerve ring… CONTINUE READING
