N-terminal modified analogs of HVFLRFamide with inhibitory activity on the locust oviduct.


New N-terminal analogs of the peptide HVFLRFamide, the minimum sequence of the insect myosuppressins capable of inhibiting spontaneous and induced contractions of the locust oviduct, were synthesized and tested for biologic activity on locust oviduct. Most active, as judged by the ability to inhibit proctolin-induced contractions of locust oviduct, was (N… (More)
