General Information
Name Mr1.8a (named by ConoServer)

Protein Type Wild type
Protein precursor Mr1.8 precursor (4571)
Notes Jin et al. 2014 called this peptide with the name Mr1.7 but it was published with the name Mr1.8 by Liu et al 2012. Liu et al 2012 also published a peptide precursor Mr1.7 which is related but not identical to Mr1.8. The variant Mr1.7a was renamed Mr1.8a. There is also doubt that it could come from the same precursor as the C-terminal amidation could only happen from the cleavage of a glycine but the precursor of Mr1.8 has a serine. The name is therefore susceptible to change if a more likely precursor for this peptide is discovered.
