Abstract

Substance P was until recently the only tachykinin known to occur in mammals, all the other members of the family having been found only in molluscan or amphibian tissues. Now we know that at least two other tachykinins, one physalaemin-like and the other kassinin-like, occur in mammalian tissues, including the brain (1, 2).
