Transcriptomic identification of starfish neuropeptide precursors yields new insights into neuropeptide evolution

Neuropeptides are evolutionarily ancient mediators of neuronal signalling in nervous systems. With recent advances in genomics/transcriptomics, an increasingly wide range of species has become accessible for molecular analysis. The deuterostomian invertebrates are of particular interest in this rega...
