Insect Myosuppressins and Sulfakinins Stimulate Release of the Digestive Enzyme α‐Amylase in Two Invertebrates: The Scallop Pecten maximus and Insect Rhynchophorus ferrugineus
TLDR
Members of the myosuppressin and sulfakinin family affect insect muscles, being potent inhibitors of cardiac and visceral muscle in addition to having effects on skeletal muscle and salivary glands.
Effect of allatostatin and proctolin on antennal pulsatile organ and hindgut muscle in the cockroach, Diploptera punctata.
TLDR
Allatostatins I and IV inhibited the proctolin-induced increase of hindgut contraction, whereas no such effect was seen in antennal pulsatile organ muscle.
Molecular cloning of the gene for the allatostatin family of neuropeptides from the cockroach Diploptera punctata.
TLDR
A cDNA from the cockroach Diploptera punctata is isolated that encodes a 41.5-kDa precursor polypeptide containing the AST family of peptides, and in situ hybridization indicated the AST-encoding gene is expressed in neurosecretory cells of D. punctata brain.
