Three guanylin-like peptides, guanylin, uroguanylin and renoguanylin and two guanylate cyclase type C (GC-C) receptor isoforms were cloned and sequenced from the European eel (Anguilla anguilla). All peptides and both receptors (GC-C1 and GC-C2) were predominantly expressed within the intestine and kidney of both sexually immature yellow, and sexually maturing, migratory silver eels. The derived amino acid sequences for the pre-prohormones and guanylate cyclase isoforms had structural features… CONTINUE READING
