Schematic representation of B. glabrata neuropeptide precursors and multiple sequence alignment of bioactive peptide region with other molluscs. For each neuropeptide, a schematic precursor protein and multiple sequence alignment with other molluscs shown. Signal peptide (yellow); bioactive peptides (blue); cleavage site (vertical line); C, represents cysteine residues. In multiple sequence alignment, blue shading provides amino acid conservation. Sequence logo above alignments also show areas of high conservation
