Identification and expression of the Drosophila adipokinetic hormone gene.

Abstract

Drosophila adipokinetic hormone (DAKH) is an eight amino acid member of a large arthropod neuropeptide family. The gene encoding the peptide precursor has been identified and sequenced providing an inferred precursor structure of 79 amino acids including a 46 amino acid carboxy-terminal fragment of unknown function. In situ hybridization identifies sites of… (More)
