Localization of aromatase in the brain of the male African catfish, Clarias gariepinus (Burchell), by microdissection and biochemical identification
TLDR
Aromatase activity was determined in small discrete areas of the brain of the African catfish, Clarias gariepinus, by a radiometric assay by measuring the release of tritium label during aromatization.
Isolation and characterization of an adipokinetic hormone release-inducing factor in locusts: the crustacean cardioactive peptide.
TLDR
The present study shows that synthetic crustacean cardioactive peptide induces the release of AKH from corpora cardiaca in a dose-dependent manner when tested in concentrations ranging from 10(-5)-10(-9) M.
Immunological evidence for an allatostatin-like neuropeptide in the central nervous system of Schistocerca gregaria, Locusta migratoria and Neobellieria bullata
TLDR
Brain extracts from Locusta migratoria suggest that in locusts allatostatin-like neuropeptides might be involved in controlling the production of juvenile hormone by the corpora allata and, perhaps, some aspects of the functioning of the corpus cardiacum as well.
Octopamine-immunoreactive neurons in the central nervous system of the cricket, Gryllus bimaculatus
TLDR
The distribution of octopamine-immunoreactive neurons is described using whole-mount preparations of all central ganglia of the cricket, Gryllus bimaculatus to discuss possible neurohemal releasing sites forOctopamine.
Multifactorial control of the release of hormones from the locust retrocerebral complex
TLDR
There is evidence that neurosecretory cells in the protocerebrum are involved in the control of JH biosynthesis, the nature of the factors involved remains to be resolved.
Immunocytochemical demonstration of octopamine-immunoreactive cells in the nervous system of Locusta migratoria and Schistocerca gregaria
TLDR
Octopamine could not be shown to occur either in the globuli cells of the mushroom bodies or in the dorsolateral part of the protocerebrum, where the perikarya of the secretomotor neurones are located that innervate the glandular cells ofThe corpus cardiacum.
Immunological evidence for an allatostatin-like neuropeptide in the central nervous system of Schistocerca gregaria, Locusta migratoria and Neobellieria bullata
TLDR
In locusts allatostatin-like neuropeptides might be involved in controlling the production of juvenile hormone by the corpora allata and, perhaps, some aspects of the functioning of the corpus cardiacum as well.
The innervation of the corpus cardiacum of Locusta migratoria: A neuroanatomical study with the use of Lucifer yellow
TLDR
Neural connections of the corpus cardiacum in the African locust, Locusta migratoria, were labelled with the fluorescent tracer Lucifer yellow, revealing a distinct fluorescent nerve tract that runs through the CCS and into the nervus corporis cardiaci II.
