Evidence for a role of orcokinin-related peptides in the circadian clock controlling locomotor activity of the cockroach Leucophaea maderae.

Abstract

The accessory medulla (AMe), a small neuropil in the optic lobe, houses the master circadian clock in the brain of the cockroach Leucophaea maderae and controls circadian rhythms in locomotor activity. Recently, members of the orcokinin family of crustacean neuropeptides were identified in a cockroach and a locust and were shown by immunocytochemistry to be… (More)
