Isolation, identification and synthesis of locustamyoinhibiting peptide (LOM-MIP), a novel biologically active neuropeptide from Locusta migratoria
A novel peptide termed locustamyoinhibiting peptide (LOM-MIP) was isolated from brain-corpora cardiaca-corpora allata-suboesophageal ganglion extracts of the locust, Locusta migratoria. The primaryExpand
The concentration-dependence of CRF-like diuretic peptide: mechanisms of action.
The mechanism of action of synthetic CCRF-DP, the corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF)-related diuretic peptide of the salt marsh mosquito Culex salinarius, was investigated in isolated MalpighianExpand
Isolation and Identification of a Sulfakinin-Like Peptide, with Sequence Homology to Vertebrate Gastrin and Cholecystokinin, from the Brain of Locusta Migratoria
A neuropeptide (pGlu-Leu-Ala-Ser-Asp-Asp-Tyr-Gly-His-Met-Arg-Phe-NH2) with a blocked N-terminus and related to leucosulfakinins I and II from the Madeira roach has been isolated from an extract ofExpand
Locustatachykinin I and II, two novel insect neuropeptides with homology to peptides of the vertebrate tachykinin family
Two myotropic peptides termed locustatachykinin I (Gly‐Pro‐Ser‐Gly‐Phe‐Tyr‐Gly‐Val‐Arg‐NH2) and locustatachykinin II (Ala‐Pro‐Leu‐Ser‐Gly‐Phe‐Tyr‐Gly‐Val‐Arg‐NH2) were isolated from brain‐corporaExpand
Locustatachykinin III and IV: two additional insect neuropeptides with homology to peptides of the vertebrate tachykinin family
Two myotropic peptides termed locustatachykinin III and IV were isolated from 9000 brain-corpora cardiaca-corpora allata-suboesophageal ganglion extracts of the locust, Locusta migratoria. TheExpand
Leucokinins, a new family of ion transport stimulators and inhibitors in insect Malpighian tubules.
Leucokinins are octapeptides isolated from heads of the cockroach Leucophaea maderae. In the cockroach they increase motility of the isolated hindgut. Surprisingly, synthetic leucokinins haveExpand
A neurohormone regulating both methyl farnesoate synthesis and glucose metabolism in a crustacean.
Methyl farnesoate (MF) has been identified as a juvenile hormone-like compound in crustacea which has central roles in the regulation of development and reproduction. To study the regulation of MFExpand
Locustakinin, a novel myotropic peptide from Locusta migratoria, isolation, primary structure and synthesis
The isolated hindgut of the cockroach, Leucophaea maderae is a very efficient bioassay tool for the monitoring of certain structural types of insect myotropic peptides during HPLC purification. UsingExpand
Structure-activity relationships for inhibitory insect myosuppressins: Contrast with the stimulatory sulfakinins
Unusual among insect neuropeptides, the decapeptide myosuppressins are capable of inhibiting contractions of visceral muscle, including the isolated cockroach hindgut. The C-terminal pentapeptideExpand
The Leucophaea maderae hindgut preparation: A rapid and sensitive bioassay tool for the isolation of insect myotropins of other insect species
Abstract The isolated hindgut preparation of the cockroach, Leucophaea maderae has provided an effective bioassay tool for the isolation of certain structural types of insect myotropic peptides.Expand
