Structure-activity relationships of 18 endogenous neuropeptides on the motor nervous system of the nematode Ascaris suum.

Neuropeptides play an important role in all nervous systems and structure-activity studies of related peptides is one approach to understanding this role. This study of the motor nervous system of the parasitic nematode Ascaris suum describes the physiological effects of a family of 18 endogenous Ascaris FMRFamide-like peptides (AF peptides) on the membrane… (More)
