High impact information on LOC406145

  • The sequences are given of two peptides (secapin and melittin F) whose isolation from the venom of the common European honey bee (Apis mellifera) has previously been described [Gauldie et al. (1976) Eur. J. Biochem. 61, 369--376] [1].
  • Ion pair reagents were required to resolve the strongly basic peptides, secapin, mast cell degranulating (MCD-) peptide and apamin, by reversed-phase (RP) HPLC [2].
