The biological activities of two synthetic oligopeptides (His-Trp-Leu-Gln-Leu and Trp-Leu-Gln-Leu), which represent part of the primary structure of the mating hormone alpha factor from Saccharomyces cerevisiae, were studied. The peptides did not exhibit hormonal activity by themselves. However, both intensified the mating-type-specific inhibitory effect of… CONTINUE READING
