Recently, there has been intense interest in the possibility that peptides might function as neurotransmitters1,2. Despite much progress, there remains no clear-cut example in which the production of a chemically characterized peptide may be ascribed to individual identifiable neurones of proven physiological role/Invertebrate systems have proved to be particularly valuable for the study of identified neurones, including those producing peptides3,4. We have now identified a neurone in ganglia… CONTINUE READING
