Changes in the neuropeptide content of Biomphalaria ganglia nervous system following Schistosoma infection

PMCID: 5455113
PMID: 28578678
DOI: 10.1186/s13071-017-2218-1

[…] f they were predicted to: (i) be secretory, and (ii) have multiple cleavage sites based on Neuropred []. De novo-only sequenced peptides were subjected to the BLAST against the neuropeptide database, NeuroPep [], and those with matches were designated as novel neuropeptides of B. glabrata. Multiple sequence alignments were created with the Molecular Evolutionary Genetics Analysis (MEGA) software v […]


Analytic framework for peptidomics applied to large scale neuropeptide identification

Nat Commun
PMCID: 4857386
PMID: 27142507
DOI: 10.1038/ncomms11436

[…] To benchmark our bioinformatic workflow described above, we compared it with established approaches such as a curated database of neuropeptides (for example, NeuroPep) and prediction tools (for example, PeptideRanker or NeuroPred). A direct comparison of our peptide data to the NeuroPep database showed that of the 2,856 unique sequences mapping to pro-horm […]
