The role of allatostatins in juvenile hormone synthesis in insects and crustaceans.
TLDR
Three types of allatostatins in insects have been isolated: FGLamides, W(X)(6)Wamide, and PISCFs; however, although these types occur in all groups of insects studied, they act as inhibitors of juvenile hormone production in only some groups.
The Drosophila melanogaster homologue of an insect calcitonin-like diuretic peptide stimulates V-ATPase activity in fruit fly Malpighian tubules.
TLDR
The Droseophila melanogaster homologue of an insect calcitonin-like diuretic hormone was identified in a BLAST search of the Drosophila genome database and the predicted 31-residue amidated peptide was synthesised and tested for activity on fruit fly Malpighian tubules.
Cockroach diuretic hormones: characterization of a calcitonin-like peptide in insects.
TLDR
Dippu-DH(31) represents a distinct type of insect DH with actions that differ from those of previously identified insect peptides with diuretic activity.
