Arg-Phe-Amide RFamide Related Peptides
FMRF-amide-related peptides (FaRPs) are small peptides of 4–18 amino acids with RFamide (arg-phe-NH2) at the C terminus. Aside from the known function of regulating feeding, FMRF amide related peptides have been found to stimulate growth hormone release in amphibians; modulate central serotonergic transmission, the opioid systems and pain regulation in vertebrates; and produce antipsychotic-like effects when centrally administered in rodents.
