Allatostatins are a family of insect neuropeptides that inhibit juvenile hormone biosynthesis by the corpora allata. We have characterized cDNA and genomic DNA sequences that specify a preproallatostatin precursor in the oviparous cockroach Periplaneta americana. Comparison of this precursor with that previously described [Donly, B. C., Ding, Q., Tobe, S. S. & Bendena, W. G. (1993) Proc. Natl Acad. Sci. USA 90, 8807-8811] for the viviparous cockroach Diploptera punctata revealed several common… CONTINUE READING
