    ..Although all 4 peptides had inhibitory effects on the vagina vera, KPSFVRFamide and KPSFIRFamide (threshold, >/=0.1 microM) were less potent than KPNFVRFamide and KPNFIRFamide (threshold, >/=10 nM). ..

    ..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. ..
