The peptides met- and leu-enkephalin were identified in the telencephalon, rombencephalon, diencephalon and hypophysis of Ambystoma mexicanum brain by radioimmunoassay procedure. The met-enkephalin was the predominant peptide present in the axolotl brain in contrast with leu-enkephalin, except in the hypophysis where the ratio MET/LEU was 2.2/l. The clear differences in the concentration between enkephalins through a submammalian brain species as Ambystoma genus and the possibility that leu… CONTINUE READING
