A number of RFamide peptides have been characterized in invertebrate species and these peptides have been found to exert a broad spectrum of biological activities. In contrast, in vertebrates, our knowledge on RFamide peptides is far more limited and only a few members of the RFamide peptide family have been identified in various vertebrate classes during the last years. The present review focuses on two novel RFamide peptides, Rana RFamide (R-RFa) and 26RFa, that have been recently isolated… CONTINUE READING
