Hi Scientists:

I wanna know if you can help me to find the aminoacids sequence of some endorphins, I´ve looked for it before but I´ve not been successful, does anyone of you have the answer?

Beta-endorphin is an endogenous opioid peptide neurotransmitter found in the neurons of both the central and peripheral nervous system.

Sequence: "Tyr Gly Gly Phe Met Thr Ser Glu Lys Ser Gln Thr Pro Leu Val Thr Leu Phe Lys Asn Ala Ile Ile Lys Asn Ala Tyr Lys Lys Gly Glu"

This is only one of many endorphins, but it is a start.
