Analysis of the Central Nervous System Transcriptome of the Eastern Rock Lobster Sagmariasus verreauxi Reveals Its Putative Neuropeptidome

Figure 1

Type A allatostatin precursors predicted partial ORFs and conserved motif.

A) N-terminus ORF (derived from Unigene56418_All) with signal peptide (highlighted in red),10 predicted allatostatin peptides (highlighted in green), and amidated glycine (highlighted in light blue), separated by carboxyl-peptidase cleavage sites (underlined). B) Middle part ORF (derived from Unigene36127_All) with 8 predicted allatostatin peptides (highlighted in green), separated by carboxyl-peptidase cleavage sites (underlined). C) C- terminus ORF (derived from Unigene45628_All) with 4 predicted carcinustatin peptides (highlighted in green) and amidated glycine (highlighted in light blue), separated by carboxyl-peptidase cleavage sites (underlined). Asterisk indicates the stop codon. D) Type A allatostatin peptides conservation: 22 predicted neuropeptides of 8-10 aa in length derived from 3 putative partial transcripts with XXXXYXFGLamide conserved.
