Many (in)vertebrates simultaneously release several structurally and functionally related hormones; however, the relevance of this phenomenon is poorly understood. In the locust e.g. each of three adipokinetic hormones (AKHs) is capable of controlling mobilization of carbohydrate and lipid from fat body stores, but it is unclear why three AKHs coexist. We now demonstrate disparities in the signal transduction of these hormones. Massive doses of the AKHs stimulated total inositol phosphate… CONTINUE READING
