    ..A normal excitatory response was noted following the addition of 10 microM SVPGVLRFamide to muscle strips preincubated in high-K(+), Ca(2+)- and Cl(-)-free media. ..

    ..Indeed, we found that the orphan receptor encoded by the Y59H11AL.1 gene is activated by several C. elegans neuropeptides, including SPMERSAMVRFamide. These peptides activate the receptor in a concentration-dependent way. ..
