Previous reports have demonstrated powerful neuromodulatory actions of the molluscan tetrapeptide FMRFamide in both the central and peripheral nervous systems of the freshwater snail Helisoma. The present study was designed to examine both the nature of the FMRFamide-like peptides in Helisoma and to define their physiological actions at a peripheral synapse. We report that, as determined by HPLC/RIA and mass spectrometry, Helisoma contains both FMRFamide and 2 of its analogs, FLRFamide and… Expand
Immunocytochemical localization of FMRFamide in the central nervous system and the kidney of Helisoma duryi (Mollusca): its possible antidiuretic role.
TLDR
Electron microscopic examination shows that the axons innervating either the smooth muscles of the kidney or the kidney itself contain neurosecretory granules morphologically similar to type-3 cells of the visceral and left parietal ganglia. Expand
FMRFamide‐related peptides, partial serotonin depletion, and osmoregulation in Helisoma duryi (mollusca: pulmonata)
TLDR
Serotonergic neurons were studied by specific histological methods, and neurons containing Phe‐Met‐Arg‐Phe‐NH2 (FMRFamide)‐related heptapeptides were identified with an antiserum specific for these substances in the central nervous system of the freshwater snail Helisoma duryi to determine whether these substances could be involved in osmoregulation.

Chapter 3 Relationships among the FMRFamide-like peptides
TLDR
This chapter describes the relationships among the FMRFamide-like peptides and examines the three ways of examining these relationships––that is, according to the specific similarities of structure, bioactivity, and genetic affinity that can yield quite different pictures of the family. Expand
FMRFamide-related peptides from the kidney of the snail, Helisoma trivolvis
TLDR
Three FMRFamide-related peptides were purified and characterized from the kidney of the snail and detected using two radioimmunoassays (RIA) for FaRPs, which appear to be involved in osmoregulation in H. trivolvis. Expand
Diversity of the RFamide Peptide Family in Mollusks
TLDR
The major challenge will then logically concern the elucidation of the FLP repertoire of orphan mollusk classes and the way they are functionally related, as well as deciphering FLP signaling pathways by characterizing the specific receptors these peptides bind. Expand
Two FMRFamide-like peptides from the free-living nematode Panagrellus redivivus
TLDR
Immunohistochemical techniques localized FMRFamide-like material in several regions of these organisms, including the nerve cords and, most prominently, in paired groups of cells located caudally to the base of the pharynx. Expand
Authentic FMRFamide is present in the polychaete Nereis virens
TLDR
The identification of a tetrapeptides are the more ancient members of the family, and were probably present in the common ancestors of the annelids, arthropods, and molluscs. Expand
Ultrastructural aspects of peptidergic modulation in the peripheral nervous system of Helix pomatia

TLDR
Diverse, non‐synaptic modulatory roles of neuropeptides in the peripheral nervous system of Helix pomatia are suggested, including localized membrane effects and neurohormonal‐like remote global controls, that may also be of significance in orchestrating the effects of neuro peptides released at the same time on different targets.

FMRFamide-Related Peptides: Organisation and Expression of the Gene in the Snail Lymnaea
TLDR
Although FMR Famide immunoreactivity shows a broad phylogenetic distribution with FMRFamide-related peptides (FaRPs) having been detected in every organism studied including the mammalian CNS, these observations suggest that a family of FMRfamide- related peptides exists within the animal kingdom.

A new biological activity for the neuropeptide FMRFamide: experimental evidence for a secretagogue effect on amylase secretion in the scallopPecten maximus
TLDR
FMR Famide immunoreactivity in the digestive tract of the bivalve molluscPecten maximus was investigated by immunocytochemistry and the FMRF Famide-induced secretion was shown to be time- and dose-dependent. Expand

Biochemical and immunocytological localization of the neuropeptides FMRFamide, SCPA, SCPB, to neurons involved in the regulation of feeding in Aplysia
TLDR
The coexistence of the 3 peptides in the same neuron was surprising in light of the observations that these peptides often have opposite biological activity. Expand
Biochemical and immunocytological localization of molluscan small cardioactive peptides in the nervous system of Aplysia californica
TLDR
The high concentration of the SCPs and the relatively large number of immunoreactive neurons in the buccal ganglion suggest a particularly important role of these peptides specifically in feeding behavior. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that peptides may play a prominent role in the regulation of feeding behavior in Helisoma. Expand

TLDR
The ELH effects on the in vitro nervous system support the hypothesis that ELH in vivo acts directly on the nervous system to suppress feeding activity, controlled by the buccal and cerebral ganglia. Expand
Evidence for parallel actions of a molluscan neuropeptide and serotonin in mediating arousal in Aplysia.
TLDR
The findings suggest that parallel peptidergic and serotonergic pathways may mediate similar aspects of arousal in Aplysia. Expand

TLDR
The plasticity of a synapse in the molluscan peripheral nervous system was examined under a variety of experimental, physiological, and pharmacological conditions and the possible physiological role of this action potential/EPSP relationship was evaluated. Expand

The present findings support a neurotransmitter role for a FMRFamide like peptide in the mammalian brain, possibly related to endocrine and autonomic regulation as well as pain modulation. Expand

TLDR
The effects of 3 neuropeptides and the bioactive amine 5-HT on identified motoneurons and interneurons involved in the control of feeding behavior in Aplysia californica are examined to suggest the output of a buccal ganglion central pattern generator may be modulated to produce distinct patterns of motoneuron activity by these candidate transmitters.
