Bombyx orcokinins are brain‐gut peptides involved in the neuronal regulation of ecdysteroidogenesis
Biosynthesis of ecdysteroids, the insect steroid hormones controlling gene expression during molting and metamorphosis, takes place primarily in the prothoracic gland (PG). The activity of the PG isExpand
