[Met5]-Enkephalin-, [Met5]-enkephalin-Arg6-, [Met5]-enkephalin-Arg6-Phe7-, metorphamide- and BAM 22P-like peptides could be localized in the amphibian brain by immunocytochemistry. However, a [Met5]-enkephalin-Arg6-Gly7-Leu8-like peptide could not be detected in the brain of any anuran species with an antiserum that was capable of detecting this octapeptide… CONTINUE READING
