Neuropeptides and protein hormones are ancient molecules that mediate cell-to-cell communication. The whole genome sequence from the red flour beetle Tribolium castaneum, along with those from other insect species, provides an opportunity to study the evolution of the genes encoding neuropeptide and protein hormones. We identified 41 of these genes in the Tribolium genome by using a combination of bioinformatic and peptidomic approaches. These genes encode >80 mature neuropeptides and protein…

Genomics and peptidomics of neuropeptides and protein hormones present in the parasitic wasp Nasonia vitripennis.

TLDR
A completely novel neuropeptide gene in Nasonia is discovered, coding for peptides containing the C-terminal sequence RYamide, which has orthologs in nearly all arthropods with a sequenced genome and its expression in mosquitoes was confirmed by mass spectrometry.

Genomics, transcriptomics, and peptidomics of Spodoptera frugiperda (Lepidoptera, Noctuidae) neuropeptides.

TLDR
This study provides the most complete neuropeptide description for the important pest S. frugiperda as a foundation to study the factors regulating insect growth, reproduction, and behavior and confirms that a comprehensive multi-omics analysis is necessary for the identification of Neuropeptides.

Characterization and Expression Profiling of Neuropeptides and G-Protein-Coupled Receptors (GPCRs) for Neuropeptides in the Asian Citrus Psyllid, Diaphorina citri (Hemiptera: Psyllidae)

TLDR
This study provides the first investigation on the genes of neuropeptides and their receptors in D. citri, which may play key roles in regulating the physiology and behaviors of D.citri.

Identification and expression profiles of neuropeptides and their G protein-coupled receptors in the rice stem borer Chilo suppressalis

TLDR
This study provides fundamental information that may further the understanding of neuropeptidergic signaling systems in Lepidoptera and aid in the design of peptidomimetics, pseudopeptides or small molecules capable of disrupting the physiological processes regulated by these signaling molecules and their receptors.

Genomics- and Peptidomics-Based Discovery of Conserved and Novel Neuropeptides in the American Cockroach.

TLDR
A comprehensive neuropeptidome and detailed spatiotemporal distribution patterns are shown, providing a solid basis for future functional studies of neuropepeptides in the American cockroach.

Identification and Characterization of Neuropeptides and Their G Protein-Coupled Receptors (GPCRs) in the Cowpea Aphid Aphis craccivora

TLDR
expression profiling revealed neuropeptide genes and their GPCR genes that are differentially expressed at different developmental stages and in different wing morphs, thus laying the foundation for the development of new methods for aphid control targeting these signaling systems.

Neuropeptides and neuropeptide receptors in the Drosophila melanogaster genome.

TLDR
The recently completed Drosophila genome sequence for G protein-coupled receptors sensitive to bioactive peptides (peptide GPCRs) is scanned and 44 genes are described that represent the vast majority, and perhaps all, of the peptide G PCRs encoded in the fly genome.

Identifying neuropeptide and protein hormone receptors in Drosophila melanogaster by exploiting genomic data.

TLDR
This review will give an update about the current knowledge of all Drosophila neuropeptide and protein hormone receptors, and discuss their phylogenetic relationships.

Peptidomics of the Larval Drosophila melanogasterCentral Nervous System*

TLDR
This study analyzed the peptidome of the larval Drosophila central nervous system at the amino acid sequence level and provided biochemical evidence for the presence of 28 neuropeptides, including 18 encoded in previously cloned or annotated precursor genes, although not all of them were predicted correctly.

Expression of a novel neuropeptide, NVGTLARDFQLPIPNamide, in the larval and adult brain of Drosophila melanogaster

TLDR
Based on this distribution pattern, IPNamide might be involved in phototransduction, in processing sensory stimuli, as well as in controlling the activity of the oesophagus and TPAEDFMRFamide, a member of the F MRFamide peptide family.

cDNA cloning and transcript distribution of two different neuroparsin precursors in the desert locust, Schistocerca gregaria

TLDR
This paper presents the cloning of two different neuroparsin precursor cDNAs from the brain of the desert locust, Schistocerca gregaria, and reveals that the Scg‐NPP2 mRNA content proved to be strongly regulated during the reproductive cycle in both adult males and females.

In Silico Identification of New Secretory Peptide Genes in Drosophila melanogaster*S

TLDR
The Drosophila genome was scanned for predicted proteins with the structural hallmarks of neuropeptide precursors and 76 additional putative secretory peptide genes were predicted, providing further evidence that many neuropeptic genes were already present in the ancestor of Protostomia and DeuterostOMia prior to their divergence.

Peptidomics of CNS‐associated neurohemal systems of adult Drosophila melanogaster: A mass spectrometric survey of peptides from individual flies

TLDR
The results show that peptidomic approaches are well suited to study differential neuropeptide expression or posttranslational modifications in morphologically defined parts of the nervous system and in a developmental and physiological context in animals as small as Drosophila melanogaster.

Cloning, expression and pharmacological characterization of a vasopressin-related receptor in an annelid, the leech Theromyzon tessulatum.

TLDR
The characterization of a novel AVP/OT superfamily receptor in annelids is described, which is considered the most distant group of coelomate metazoans possessing a functional A VP/OT-related endocrine system.
