In this study chromatographic, immunochemical, and immunocytochemical methods provide evidence of a galanin-like peptide(s) in an invertebrate, the blowfly Phormia terraenovae. The major portion of the galanin-like immunoreactivity (GAL-LI) in fly heads was extractable in acetic acid but not in boiling water, which suggests that the peptide(s) may be highly basic in nature. GAL-LI was present both in the head and body portion of the blowfly in roughly the same amounts. Initial gel filtration… CONTINUE READING
