Identification of one tachykinin- and two kinin-related peptides in the brain of the white shrimp, Penaeus vannamei.
This paper reports the purification of three myotropic neuropeptides from the white shrimp Penaeus vannamei. The central nervous systems of 3500 shrimps were extracted in an acidified solvent, afterExpand

The Kinin Peptide Family in Invertebrates
Abstract: Kinins comprise a family of peptides that were first found in the central nervous system of insects and recently also in mollusks and crustaceans. After the isolation of the first membersExpand

Isolation and characterization of eight myoinhibiting peptides from the desert locust, Schistocerca gregaria: new members of the cockroach allatostatin family
Eight myoinhibiting peptides were purified by high performance liquid chromatography from a methanolic extract of 7000 brains of the desert locust, Schistocerca gregaria. Complete sequences wereExpand

Molecular cloning of the precursor cDNA for schistostatins, locust allatostatin-like peptides with myoinhibiting properties
The cDNA encoding the precursor polypeptide for schistostatins, allatostatin-like peptides which have been shown to inhibit peristaltic movements of the lateral oviducts of Schistocerca gregaria, hasExpand

Isolation, identification and synthesis of PDVDHFLRFamide (SchistoFLRFamide) in Locusta migratoria and its association with the male accessory glands, the salivary glands, the heart, and the oviduct
An amidated decapeptide, exhibiting strong inhibitory activity of spontaneous visceral muscle movements, was isolated from 9000 brain-corpora cardiaca-corpora allata-subesophageal ganglion complexesExpand

Peptides in the Locusts, Locusta migratoria and Schistocerca gregaria
The first peptide identified in locusts was adipokinetic hormone I (AKH-I), a neurohormone mobilizing lipids from the fat body. No other locusts peptides were isolated until 1985. From then onExpand

Isolation and characterization of an adipokinetic hormone release-inducing factor in locusts: the crustacean cardioactive peptide.
A methanolic extract of 7000 desert locust (Schistocerca gregaria) brains contains several factors that stimulate the in vitro release of adipokinetic hormone (AKH) by glandular cells of locustExpand

Peptidergic control of the corpus cardiacum-corpora allata complex of locusts.
The brain-corpora cardiaca-corpora allata complex of insects is the physiological equivalent of the brain-hypophysis axis of vertebrates. In locusts there is only one corpus cardiacum as a result ofExpand

The pigmentotropic hormone [His7]-corazonin, absent in a Locusta migratoria albino strain, occurs in an albino strain of Schistocerca gregaria
[His(7)]-corazonin has recently been identified in the corpora cardiaca (CC) of two locust species, the migratory locust, Locusta migratoria and the desert locust, Schistocerca gregaria, as the darkExpand

Immunological evidence for an allatostatin-like neuropeptide in the central nervous system of Schistocerca gregaria, Locusta migratoria and Neobellieria bullata
Abstract.Methanolic brain extracts of Locusta migratoria inhibit in vitro juvenile hormone biosynthesis in both the locust L. migratoria and the cockroach Diplo-ptera punctata. A polyclonal antibodyExpand
