First purified from clam ganglia, FMRFamide (Phe-Met-Arg-Phe-NH2) is expressed in both invertebrates and vertebrates. its has been shown to serve various functions in the mammalian nervous system including inhibition of morphine-induced feeding, behavioral effects when administered intrathecally, and to have amnesic effects in rodents. More recently, FMRFamide has been shown to potentiate proton currents and a suggested mode of action is through modulation of ASIC1 and ASIC 3.
