The presence of chromogranin-related peptides in a wide range of species was investigated by one and two-dimensional electrophoresis followed by immunoblotting. Antisera against bovine chromogranins A and B and the peptide WE-14 (chromogranin A316-329) were used. Chromogranins were identified by their heat stability, by their electrophoretic behavior, and by immunological cross-reaction with antisera. In all species investigated ranging from mammals to birds, amphibians, fish, and arthropods… CONTINUE READING
