Isolation, primary structure and synthesis of neomyosuppressin, a myoinhibiting neuropeptide from the grey fleshfly, Neobellieria bullata.


1. An amidated decapeptide, showing strong inhibitory activity of spontaneous visceral muscle movement was isolated, from head extracts of 42 thousand fleshflies, Neobellieria bullata (Diptera, Sarcophagidae). 2. Amino acid sequencing and verification by peptide synthesis revealed the following primary structure: Thr-Asp-Val-Asp-His-Val-Phe-Leu-Arg-PheNH2… (More)
