Octopamine immunoreactivity in the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster
Octopamine immunoreactivity in the adult CNS revealed many additional neurons compared to the larval CNS, indicating that at least a subset of adult octopamine neurons may differentiate during metamorphosis.
Octopamine‐like immunoreactivity in the brain and subesophageal ganglion of the honeybee
The organization of putative octopaminergic pathways in the brain and subesophageal ganglion of the honeybee was investigated with a well‐defined polyclonal antiserum against octopamine. Five
Octopamine immunoreactive cell populations in the locust thoracic‐abdominal nervous system
It is suggested that probably all peripherally projecting DUM‐cells are octopaminergic in the examined ganglia and shown to label with an antiserum to γ‐amino butyric acid (GABA).
Identical cellular distribution of all abundant neuropeptides in the major abdominal neurohemal system of an insect (Periplaneta Americana)
A complete colocalization of all abundant neuropeptides in this hormonal system, including periviscerokinin‐1 and ‐2, pyrokinin‐5, YLSamide, VEAacid, and SKNacid is found and the development of this neurohormonal system is studied and is described in detail.
A new specific antibody reveals octopamine‐like immunoreactivity in cockroach ventral nerve cord
The topographical distribution of octopamine‐immunoreactive (ir) neuronal elements in wholemounts and paraffin sections of the ventral nerve cord of the American cockroach is described.
Periviscerokinin-like immunoreactivity in the nervous system of the American cockroach
All visceral muscles innervated by periviscerokinin-immunoreactive fibres were shown to be sensitive to this peptide, whereas the hindgut gave no specific response toThis peptide.
Mapping of octopamine‐immunoreactive neurons in the central nervous system of the lobster
The cell bodies of octopamine‐immunoreactive neurosecretory cells in the thoracic segment of the nerve cord were found to contain 40–100 fmol ofOctopamine, while control neurons had none.
Octopamine in the developing nervous system of the pond snail, Lymnaea stagnalis L.
The postembryonic increase in number of immunoreactive neurons and development of axonal arborization is accompanied by a rapid, exponential enhancement of octopamine content of Lymnaea CNS, as detected radioenzymatically.
