Isolation, identification and synthesis of locustamyoinhibiting peptide (LOM-MIP), a novel biologically active neuropeptide from Locusta migratoria
Discovery of a cholecystokinin-gastrin-like signaling system in nematodes.
The data indicate that the gastrin-CCK signaling system was already well established before the divergence of protostomes and deuterostomes, and also display similar biological activities with respect to digestive enzyme secretion and fat storage.
Expression and Functional Characterization of aDrosophila Neuropeptide Precursor with Homology to Mammalian Preprotachykinin A*
Analysis of the Drosophila genome allowed us to identify a putative tachykinin-related peptide prohormone (prepro-DTK) gene, which encodes five novel D rosophila tachyKinin- related peptides (called DTK peptides) with conserved C-terminal FXGXR-amide motifs common to other insect tachy Kinin-based peptides.

To the authors' knowledge, the cloned DrmFMRFa-R is the first functionally active FMRFamide G protein-coupled receptor described in invertebrates to date.

It is demonstrated that the Drosophila melanogaster capa neuropeptide gene and its encoded peptides alter desiccation and cold tolerance and the use of rationally designed peptide analogs as agents for disrupting protective stress tolerance.
