The Kinin Peptide Family in Invertebrates
TLDR
The kinin family is discussed in terms of method of isolation, structure, in vitro and in vivo activity, distribution, receptors, and signal transduction, and the crustacean and insect members of the Kinin family are compared, using the data available on crustacea.
Isolation and Identification of a Sulfakinin-Like Peptide, with Sequence Homology to Vertebrate Gastrin and Cholecystokinin, from the Brain of Locusta Migratoria
TLDR
A neuropeptide with a blocked N-terminus and related to leucosulfakinins I and II from the Madeira roach has been isolated from an extract of 9000 brain complexes of Locusta migratoria and stimulates the motility of the cockroach hindgut.
