Through multiple sequence alignment and phylogenetic analysis, the subgrouping of the crustacean hyperglycemic hormone (CHH) family was updated using the most complete, nonredundant sequence data set. All sequences from insects were clustered into a distinct subbranch with characters closer to CHH subfamily I. Several sequences that are controversial in their nomenclature and classification are discussed. The motif configuration of CHHs differs from that of molt-inhibiting hormone or gonad… CONTINUE READING
