Hormonal regulation in insects: facts, gaps, and future directions.
There are two main classes of hormones in insects: 1) the true hormones produced by epithelial glands and belonging to the ecdysteroids or juvenile hormones and 2) the neuropeptide hormones producedExpand

Mode of action of neuropeptides from the adipokinetic hormone family.
Neuropeptides of the adipokinetic hormone (AKH) family regulate inter alia mobilisation of various substrates from stores in the fat body of insects during episodes of flight. How is this achieved?Expand

Anaerobic Energy Metabolism
When considering anaerobic energy metabolism, many people are unaware that it occurs in insects at all. This may be easily explained by the general knowledge that the energy metabolism of insectExpand

Energy Metabolism During Anoxia and Recovery in Shell Adductor and Foot Muscle of the Gastropod Mollusc Haliotis lamellosa: Formation of the Novel Anaerobic End Product Tauropine
Metabolic responses to experimental anoxia and subsequent recovery, and to exercise were investigated in two different muscular tissues of the ormer, Haliotis lamellosa. The tissues are employed forExpand

Energy metabolism of arthropods and mollusks during environmental and functional anaerobiosis
During environmental anaerobiosis, when the whole organism is exposed to anoxic conditions caused by external, physical factors in the microhabitat, arginine phosphate, glycogen, and aspartate (onlyExpand

Adipokinetic hormone signaling through the gonadotropin-releasing hormone receptor modulates egg-laying in Caenorhabditis elegans
In mammals, hypothalamic gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) is a neuropeptide that stimulates the release of gonadotropins from the anterior pituitary. The existence of a putative functionalExpand
