Abstract.The development of peptide phenotypes in the lamina and accessory medulla of the locust brain (Schistocerca gregaria) was studied using antisera against pigment-dispersing hormone (PDH), urotensin I, and Mas-allatotropin. PDH-like immunoreactivity was first detected as 45% of embryonic development in somata at the base of the optic lobe. In the 55% embryo, processes from these neurons (PDFMe cells) extended into the developing accessory medulla and into the lamina and, by 85% of… CONTINUE READING
