Effects of FMRFamide-related peptides and morphine on the isolated foregut of the locust Schistocerca gregaria.
FMRFamide-like material in the earwig, Euborellia annulipes, and its functional significance.
The neurosecretory system of the earwig contained material similar to that of FMRFamide, as shown by immunocytochemistry, and preparations from females starved for 7 days and subsequently fed for 3 days responded to 10 nM F MRFamide with increases in gut motility.
Biochemistry and molecular biology of receptors for biogenic amines in locusts

    Microscopy research and technique
  • 2002
The biochemistry and molecular biology of biogenic amines and their metabotropic receptors in insects, with a focus on locusts, is reviewed and their pharmacological features and the molecular properties are described in detail.
Serotonin, serotonin receptors and their actions in insects
This brief review will focus on the metabolism, biological role and mode-of-action of serotonin in insects, and comparisons are made with the vertebrate serotonergic system.
Pigment‐dispersing hormone‐like peptide in the nervous system of the flies Phormia and Drosophila: Immunocytochemistry and partial characterization
Since the flies studied here do not display hormonally controlled, fast pigment migrations, the PDH‐like peptide may have a role as neurotransmitter or neuromodulator in the central nervous system, especially in the visual system, and a regulatory role in the stomatogastric system and the hindgut.
