Hormonal regulation in insects: facts, gaps, and future directions.
TLDR
The authors plead for a concerted effort to continue research in this field, which will advance knowledge into the use of insect hormones as safer and species-specific molecules for insect pest management.
Regulation of intermediary metabolism and water balance of insects by neuropeptides.
  • G. Gäde
  • Biology
    Annual review of entomology
  • 2004
TLDR
Biosynthesis, release, receptors, mode of action, inactivation, structure-activity studies, and biological functions are discussed for the various peptides.
Peptides of the Adipokinetic Hormone/Red Pigment‐Concentrating Hormone Family
  • G. Gäde
  • Biology
    Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences
  • 1 April 2009
TLDR
The biodiversity of these peptides is reviewed and how the 47 known bioanalogues are distributed between the different insect orders and in which species they occur is outlined.
Insect peptide hormones: a selective review of their physiology and potential application for pest control.
TLDR
The literature is reviewed in the context of how the knowledge on neuropeptides has been and can be used for the design of novel, safe and selective compounds to control pest insects in the foreseeable future.
Anaerobic Energy Metabolism
TLDR
Insect flight muscles are the tissue of choice to study insect metabolism and its control in detail and it is evident that the respiratory rate of certain insects is the most intensly known in biology.
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
  • G. Gäde
  • Biology, Environmental Science
  • 1 August 1988
TLDR
Tissue-specific differences in anaerobic energy metabolism occur and this pattern is consistent with observed enzymatic profiles in the two muscles and with the equilibrium constants of the respective enzymes, tauropine and D-lactate dehydrogenase.
Energy metabolism of arthropods and mollusks during environmental and functional anaerobiosis
  • G. Gäde
  • Biology, Environmental Science
  • 1 December 1983
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 (only
Post-translational modifications of the insect sulfakinins: sulfation, pyroglutamate-formation and O-methylation of glutamic acid.
TLDR
The two major forms of sulfakinins were identified and chemically characterized from an extract of 800 corpora cardiaca/corpora allata complexes of the American cockroach, Periplaneta americana and were shown to be highly active on both the heart and hindgut.
