Central peptidergic ensembles associated with organization of an innate behavior
TLDR
In insights into how innate, centrally patterned behaviors can be orchestrated via recruitment of peptide cotransmitter neurons, the ETH receptor (ETHR) gene in the moth Manduca sexta is identified.
Stereotyped responses of Drosophila peptidergic neuronal ensemble depend on downstream neuromodulators
TLDR
This work shows that the response of peptidergic neurons that produce CCAP (crustacean cardioactive peptide) depends fundamentally on the actions of neuropeptides produced by other direct targets of ETH and released in a broad paracrine manner within the CNS.
Rescheduling Behavioral Subunits of a Fixed Action Pattern by Genetic Manipulation of Peptidergic Signaling
TLDR
It is demonstrated that kinin and CAMB neurons are direct targets of ETH and play critical roles in scheduling successive behavioral steps in the ecdysis FAP, and temporal organization of the FAP is likely a function of ETH receptor density in target neurons.
Identification and function of ETH receptor networks in the silkworm Bombyx mori
TLDR
PETH and ETH are multifunctional hormones that act viaETHR-A and ETHR-B to control various functions during the entire development—the ecdysis sequence and associated behaviors by the CNS and FG, JH synthesis by the CA, and possible activity of the H-organ and Malpighian tubules.
Extracting temporal relationships between weakly coupled peptidergic and motoneuronal signaling: Application to Drosophila ecdysis behavior
TLDR
A quantitative framework is presented to study the relationships between the temporal pattern of activity of peptidergic neurons and of motoneurons during Drosophila ecdysis behavior, a highly stereotyped motor sequence that is critical for insect growth.
Genetic Analysis of Ecdysis Behavior in Drosophila Reveals Partially Overlapping Functions of Two Unrelated Neuropeptides
TLDR
The results show that the functions thought to be subserved by CCAP are partially effected by bursicon, and that bursesicon plays an important and heretofore undescribed role in ecdysis behavior itself, and these findings have important implications for understanding the regulation of this vital insect behavior.
Neuropeptide Action in Insects and Crustaceans*
TLDR
Two studies illustrate how multiple neuropeptides allow for flexibility in response to physiological challenges in crustaceans and insects.
Two Splice Isoforms of Leptinotarsa Ecdysis Triggering Hormone Receptor Have Distinct Roles in Larva-Pupa Transition
TLDR
It is found that 20-hydroxyecdysone (20E) signaling triggers the expression of both ethra and ethrb in a Coleopteran insect pest, the Colorado potato beetle Leptinotarsa decemlineata.

Neuropeptide Hierarchies and the Activation of Sequential Motor Behaviors in the Hawkmoth, Manduca sexta
TLDR
The studies on the isolated nervous system of Manduca sexta show that the peptides Ecdysis-triggering hormone (ETH) and crustacean cardioactive peptide (CCAP) elicit the first two motor behaviors, the pre-ecdysis and ecdysis behaviors, respectively.
Excitatory and inhibitory roles of central ganglia in initiation of the insect ecdysis behavioural sequence.
TLDR
The data suggest that the initiation of pre-ecdysis and the transition to ecdysis are regulated by stimulatory and inhibitory factors released within the central nervous system after the initial actions of PETH and ETH.
Neuroendocrine Control of Larval Ecdysis Behavior in Drosophila: Complex Regulation by Partially Redundant Neuropeptides
TLDR
It is proposed that important additional neuropeptides, and additional interactions between known regulators, contribute to the mechanisms underlying insect ecdysis behaviors.
Two Subtypes of Ecdysis-triggering Hormone Receptor inDrosophila melanogaster *
TLDR
It is reported that the Drosophila geneCG5911 encodes two functionally distinct subtypes of G protein-coupled receptors through alternative splicing that respond preferentially to ecdysis-triggering hormones of flies and moths that are evolutionarily related to thyrotropin-releasing hormone and neuromedin U receptors.
Eclosion hormone provides a link between ecdysis-triggering hormone and crustacean cardioactive peptide in the neuroendocrine cascade that controls ecdysis behavior.
TLDR
Using intracellular recordings, it is found that ETH is a potent activator of the EH neurons, causing spontaneous action potential firing, broadening of the action potential and an increase in spike peak amplitude, which supports a model in which ETH causes pre-ecdysis behavior and at higher concentrations stimulates the Eh neurones.
Modulation of ecdysis in the moth Manduca sexta: the roles of the suboesophageal and thoracic ganglia.
TLDR
CO(2) therefore appears to be a novel and non-invasive tool for studies of ecdysis behavior in insects and can uncouple the basic larval motor program from modulatory influences provided by the adult pterothoracic ganglion.
Identification of Ecdysis-Triggering Hormone from an Epitracheal Endocrine System
TLDR
Developing insects repeatedly shed their cuticle by means of a stereotyped behavior called ecdysis, thought to be initiated by the brain peptide eclosion hormone, which is described from the tobacco hornworm Manduca sexta.
The hormonal coordination of behavior and physiology at adult ecdysis in Drosophila melanogaster.
TLDR
It is proposed that EH activates both ventral central nervous system elements necessary for ecdysis (possibly the CCAP cells) and descending inhibitory neurons from the head and this descending inhibition establishes a delay in the onset of Ecdysis that allows the completion of EH-activated physiological processes such as tracheal filling.
Molecular cloning and function of ecdysis-triggering hormones in the silkworm Bombyx mori.
TLDR
These findings provide the first detailed account of the natural and hormonally induced behavioural sequence preceding larval, pupal and adult ecdyses of B. mori and highlight significant differences in the neuro-endocrine activation of pre-ecdysis and ecdysis behaviours compared with the related moth, Manduca sexta.
