Novel adipokinetic hormones in the kissing bugs Rhodnius prolixus, Triatoma infestans, Dipetalogaster maxima and Panstrongylus megistus
Genome Sequence of the Tsetse Fly (Glossina morsitans): Vector of African Trypanosomiasis
The sequence and annotation of the 366-megabase Glossina mors Titans morsitans genome are described, providing a foundation for research into trypanosomiasis prevention and yield important insights with broad implications for multiple aspects of tsetse biology.
Characterisation and pharmacological analysis of a crustacean G protein-coupled receptor: the red pigment-concentrating hormone receptor of Daphnia pulex
This is the first pharmacological characterisation of a neuropeptide G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) in a crustacean and experimental evidence that Dappu-RPCH specifically activates the receptor in a mammalian cell-based bioluminescence assay is provided.
Red pigment-concentrating hormone is not limited to crustaceans.
The adipokinetic hormones of Heteroptera: a comparative study
The adipokinetic hormones from 15 species of heteropteran Hemiptera have been isolated and structurally identified using liquid chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry and it is shown that all heteropterans have octapeptide AKHs, whereas the overwhelming majority have only one AKH.
Characterization and sequence elucidation of a novel peptide with molt-inhibiting activity from the South African spiny lobster, Jasus lalandii
Substrate usage and its regulation during flight and swimming in the backswimmer, Notonecta glauca
It is assumed that Anaim‐AKH serves as a true adipokinetic hormone in the backswimmer during bouts of natural swimming and flight.
The first decapeptide adipokinetic hormone (AKH) in Heteroptera: A novel AKH from a South African saucer bug, Laccocoris spurcus (Naucoridae, Laccocorinae)
