neuropeptide head activator

Ligand id: 2496

Name: neuropeptide head activator

Compound class Peptide or derivative
Originally isolated from the freshwater coelenterate hydra (Hydra attenuata). Although the isolation of a peptide of identical amino acid sequence from human hypothalamus, bovine hypothalamus and rat intestine has been reported, its existence in mammals must be considered unproven because there is no evidence for the presence of a precursor gene for this peptide in any sequenced genome.
