The distribution and actions of FMRFamide-related peptides (FaRPs) in the corpora cardiaca of the locust Locusta migratoria were studied. Antisera to FMRFamide and SchistoFLRFamide (PDVDHVFLRFamide) label neuronal processes that impinge on glandular cells in the glandular lobe of the corpora cardiaca known to produce adipokinetic hormones. Electron microscopic immunocytochemistry revealed that these FaRP-containing processes form synaptoid contacts with the glandular cells. Approximately 12% of… 
New physiological activities of myosuppressin, sulfakinin and NVP-like peptide in Zophobas atratus beetle
TLDR
The present work showed pleiotropic activity of three neuropeptides and indicates that the visceral muscle contractions and the haemolymph sugar homeostasis in Z. atratus are regulated by complex mechanisms.
Cell biology of the adipokinetic hormone‐producing neurosecretory cells in the locust corpus cardiacum
The adipokinetic cells are neuron‐like unipolar cells, the cell bodies and cell processes of which are intermingled within the glandular part of the corpus cardiacum. In Schistocerca gregaria, they
Intestinal peptides as circulating hormones: release of tachykinin-related peptide from the locust and cockroach midgut.
TLDR
The data suggest that TRPs are released as hormones from the midgut of the locust and cockroach and that this release may be linked to nutritional status.
Regulation of insect steroid hormone biosynthesis by innervating peptidergic neurons.
TLDR
This study reports that FMRFamide-related peptides (FaRPs) regulate ecdysteroidogenesis through direct innervation of the PG in the silkworm Bombyx mori, the first report of peptides controlling ecdystersoidogenesis by direct innervation.
Annelid Endocrine Disruptors and a Survey of Invertebrate FMRFamide-Related Peptides1

TLDR
An overview of the FMRFamide-related peptides (FaRPs) is given to those studying endocrine disruption in invertebrates with the hope that they may begin to consider these peptides in their future research.
Peptidomics of the pars intercerebralis-corpus cardiacum complex of the migratory locust, Locusta migratoria.
TLDR
Peptide profiles of the pars intercerebralis and the corpora cardiaca were characterized using simple sampling protocols in combination with MALDI-TOF and electrospray ionization double quadrupole time of flight mass spectrometric technologies.
Absence of coupling between release and biosynthesis of peptide hormones in insect neuroendocrine cells.
TLDR
Adipokinetic hormone (AKH)-producing cells in the corpus cardiacum of the insect Locusta migratoria represent a neuroendocrine system containing large quantities of stored secretory peptides and the question whether the release of AKHs induces a concomitant enhancement of their biosynthesis is addressed.

Localization and release of FMRFamide-like immunoreactivity in the cerebral neuroendocrine system of Manduca sexta.
TLDR
The results suggest that FLI may have a neurohormonal or neurotransmitter function in Manduca, and evidence is provided for calcium-dependent release of FLI from the neurohaemal organs.
Several isoforms of locustatachykinins may be involved in cyclic AMP-mediated release of adipokinetic hormones from the locust Corpora cardiaca.
TLDR
Results support the proposal that LomTKs are involved in controlling the release of the adipokinetic hormones and suggest that all LOMTK isoforms may participate in this cyclic AMP-mediated event.
Isolation and characterization of an adipokinetic hormone release-inducing factor in locusts: the crustacean cardioactive peptide.
TLDR
The present study shows that synthetic crustacean cardioactive peptide induces the release of AKH from corpora cardiaca in a dose-dependent manner when tested in concentrations ranging from 10(-5)-10(-9) M.
Trehalose inhibits the release of adipokinetic hormones from the corpus cardiacum in the African migratory locust, Locusta migratoria, at the level of the adipokinetic cells.
TLDR
The hypothesis that in vivo the relatively high concentration of trehalose (80 mM) at rest strongly inhibits the release of AKHs is supported, because at the onset of flight, the demand for energy substrates exceeds the amount oftrehalose that can be mobilized from the fat body and consequently the treHalose concentration in the hemolymph decreases.
Neurosecretory cells in the honeybee brain and suboesophageal ganglion show FMRFamide‐like immunoreactivity
Immunocytochemical analysis of the brain and suboesophageal ganglion of the honeybee Apis mellifera L. was combined with Lucifer Yellow backfilling from the corpora cardiaca and intracellular
FMRFamide‐like activity in the female locust during vitellogenesis
TLDR
It is argued that this molecule functions as an oviposition hormone in the locust, with a molecular weight of 8,000, that was evident on immunoblot following sodium dodecyl sulphate‐polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of adult female hemolymph.
