Using HPLC separation, radioimmunoassay, and subsequent bioassay, we have detected the presence of an active peptide, which co-elutes with the insect myoinhibitory peptide leuco-myosuppressin, in the brain of the cockroach Diploptera punctata. We have isolated a cDNA encoding the precursor for this peptide from cDNA libraries representing D. punctata brain RNA. The cDNA sequence contains an open reading frame that upon translation would result in a prepropolypeptide of 96 amino acids… CONTINUE READING
