Cloning and sequence analysis of cDNA for diuretic hormone receptor from the Bombyx mori.

The insect diuretic hormone (DH) binds to their receptor in malpighian tubules, and stimulates water secretion and cAMP synthesis. Complementary DNA encoding a diuretic hormone receptor was cloned from the malpighian tubules of Bombyx mori. The cloned cDNA encodes a protein consisting of 391 amino acid residues with the seven transmembrane domains. The… CONTINUE READING
