FMRF-amide is a glucose-lowering hormone in the snail Helix aspersa

Abstract

Although glucose is metabolically the most important carbohydrate in almost all living organisms, still little is known about the evolution of the hormonal control of cellular glucose uptake. In this study, we identify Phe-Met-Arg-Phe-amide (FMRFa), also known as molluscan cardioexcitatory tetrapeptide, as a glucose-lowering hormone in the snail Helix… (More)
