The rapid increase in the number of putative cDNA sequences encoding crustacean hyperglycemic hormone (CHH) family in various tissues [either from the eyestalk (ES) or elsewhere] underscores a need to identify the corresponding neuropeptides in relevant tissues. Moreover, the presence of provided structural CHH implies the level of the complexity of physiological regulation in crustaceans. Much less is known of the functions of non-ES CHH than of those of its counterpart present in ESs. In the… CONTINUE READING
