Biological, chromatographical, and radioimmunological evidence for a melanotropin-like peptide in the central nervous system of Locusta migratoria.


Our recent immunocytochemical study has demonstrated the existence of alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH)-like material in the locust central nervous system. The aim of the present study was to further characterize alpha-MSH in the locust brain by its biological effect on frog skin and by high-pressure liquid chromatography in combination with… (More)
