Pigment‐dispersing hormone‐like peptide in the nervous system of the flies Phormia and Drosophila: Immunocytochemistry and partial characterization
β‐pigment‐dispersing hormone (β‐PDH) isolated from the fiddler crab (Rao et al., '85) is a member of an octadecapeptide family of neuropeptides common to arthropods. Whereas earlier studies of theseExpand

Primary structure of an analog of crustacean pigment-dispersing hormone from the lubber grasshopper Romalea microptera.
An octadecapeptide capable of inducing pigment dispersion in the chromatophores of the fiddler crab Uca pugilator has been isolated from lyophilized heads of the lubber grasshopper RomaleaExpand

Molecular cloning of two pigment-dispersing hormone (PDH) precursors in the blue crab Callinectes sapidus reveals a novel member of the PDH neuropeptide family.
A cDNA library was established from the eyestalk ganglia of the blue crab Callinectes sapidus. Screening resulted in the isolation of a clone (497 bp excluding poly(A) tail) which encodes a beta-PDHExpand

A highly conserved red pigment-concentrating hormone precursor in the blue crab Callinectes sapidus.
A cDNA library was established from the eyestalk ganglia of the blue crab Callinectes sapidus. One clone was isolated (644 bp excluding the poly(A) tail) which encodes the red pigment-concentratingExpand

Chronobiological analysis and mass spectrometric characterization of pigment-dispersing factor in the cockroach Leucophaea maderae
Abstract Pigment-dispersing factor (PDF) is a neuropeptide that plays a prominent role in the circadian clock of several insects. The cockroach Leucophaea maderae was the first animal where the siteExpand

Primary Structure and Relative Potency of an Analog of β-PDH (Pigment-Dispersing Hormone) From the Crayfish Procambarus clarkii
A pigment-dispersing hormone (PDH) from eyestalks of the crayfish Procambarus clarkii was purified by gel filtration, cation-exchange chromatography, partition chromatography, and reversed-phaseExpand

Cheliped Autotomy and Limb Regeneration in the East African Fiddler Crabs Uca Lactea (De Haan) and U. Chlorophthalmus (H. Milne Edwards)
The effect ofcheliped autotomy on limb regeneration was studied in the East African fiddler crabs Uca lactea and U. chlorophthalmus. Autotomy of either a minor or major cheliped acceleratedExpand
