Egg laying in Aplysia is mediated by a battery of neuropeptides released from the bag cell neurons. Predominant intermediates in the proteolytic processing of the Aplysia egg-laying hormone neuropeptide precursor were characterized using biochemical and immunological techniques. Following removal of the signal peptide, a rapid cleavage at the tetrabasic… CONTINUE READING
