Lom-AG-myotropin: A novel myotropic peptide from the male accessory glands of Locusta migratoria
A myotropic peptide, termed Lom-AG-myotropin, was isolated from extracts of 4400 accessory gland complexes of males of the locust, Locusta migratoria; the following sequence was derived:Expand
Co-localization of locustamyotropin- and pheromone biosynthesis activating neuropeptide-like immunoreactivity in the central nervous system of five insect species
Abstract 1. 1. Myotropin I of Locusta and Pheromone Biosynthesis Activating Neuropeptide (PBAN) of Heliothis share the same carboxyterminal pentapeptide FSPRL-amide. 2. 2. Immunostaining revealedExpand
Isolation, identification and synthesis of locustamyotropin (Lom-MT), a novel biologically active insect peptide
A peptide that stimulates the spontaneous contractions of the hindgut of Leucophaea maderae has been purified from extracts of brain-corpora cardiaca/corpora allata-subesophageal ganglion complexesExpand
Distribution of locustamyotropin-like immunoreactivity in the nervous system of Locusta migratoria
Locustamyotropin-like immunoreactivity was visualized in the nervous system of Locusta migratoria by means of the peroxidase antiperoxidase method. Highly specific antibodies to the carboxy-terminusExpand
Immunocytochemical Localization Of A Diuretic Peptide Manduca Diuresin (MasDPII) In The Brain And Subesophageal Ganglion Of The Tobacco Hawkmoth Manduca-Sexta (Lepidoptera, Sphingidae)
A purified polyclonal antibody against synthetic Manduca diuresin (formerly named MasDPII) was used to localize immunoreactive cell clusters in the protocerebrum and the suboesophageal ganglion ofExpand
False positive immunostaining of Locusta neurosecretory cells with a variety of preimmune sera.
A large number of antisera directed against vertebrate neuropeptides have been reported to yield positive staining when applied to insect brains. In most cases, the preimmune serum of the same animalExpand
Locustamyoinhibin-like (Lom-MIH) immunoreactivity in the head ganglia of the insects Neobellieria bullata, Mamestra brassicae, Leptinotarsa decemlineata and Leucophaea maderae.
A polyclonal antibody raised against locustamyoinhibin (Lom-MIH), a myoinhibiting neuropeptide of the locust Locusta migratoria, was used to search for locustamyoinhibin-like immunoreactivity in theExpand
