Crustacean hyperglycemic hormones (CHHs) are neuropeptides involved in the regulation of hemolymph glucose. The primary source of CHHs has been identified as the neurosecretory neurons of the eyestalk X-organ and its associated neurohemal organ, the sinus gland. We have identified another source of CHH-like peptides in the nervous system. With the use of immunocytochemistry, cells in the second roots of the thoracic ganglia have been observed to stain positively for CHH-reactive material. We… CONTINUE READING
