RFamide peptides in agnathans and basal chordates.
Ōsaka, Japan. In Gen Comp Endocrinol, Jul 2015
In vertebrates, the RFamide peptide family includes gonadotropin-inhibitory hormone (GnIH), neuropeptide FF (NPFF), prolactin-releasing peptide (PrRP), pyroglutamylated RFamide peptide/26RFamide peptide (QRFP/26RFa), and kisspeptins (kiss1 and kiss2).
Does Kisspeptin Belong to the Proposed RF-Amide Peptide Family?
Seoul, South Korea. In Front Endocrinol (lausanne), 2013
Because of the Arg-Phe (RF) sequence at its carboxyl terminus, KISS has been proposed to be a member of the RF-amide peptide family consisting of neuropeptide FF (NPFF), neuropeptide VF (NPVF), pyroglutamylated RF-amide peptide (QRFP), and prolactin-releasing hormone (PRLH).
