In the cockroach Diploptera punctata, sequencing of the cDNA for the insect myoinhibitory neuropeptide, leucomyosuppressin (LMS), has demonstrated that LMS is the only Phe‐Met‐Arg‐Phe‐amide (NH2) (FMRFamide)‐related peptide to be encoded by this gene (Donly et al. [1996] Insect Biochem. Mol. Biol. 26:627–637). However, in the present study, high performance liquid chromatography analysis of brain extracts showed six discrete FMRFamide‐like immunoreactive fractions, one of which co‐eluted with… 
Molecular characterization and cell‐specific expression of a Manduca sexta FLRFamide gene
TLDR
Molecular characterization of the F10 gene has provided insights into its regulation and cell‐specific distribution that will enhance the understanding of how these FaRPs modulate different physiological systems and ultimately behavior.
Molecular characterization and cell-specific expression of an ion transport peptide in the tobacco hornworm, Manduca sexta
TLDR
A nucleotide fragment spanning the conserved A1/A2 region of the putative CHH/ITP gene was sequenced from larval cDNA of the tobacco hornworm, Manduca sexta and showed a high degree of sequence conservation with the same region from other insects and, to a lesser degree, with that of crustacean species, suggesting the presence of a Manduca-specific CHH /ITP mRNA.
Examination of the role of FMRFamide-related peptides in the circadian clock of the cockroach Leucophaea maderae
TLDR
A role for the different FaRPs in the control of circadian locomotor activity rhythms in L. maderae is suggested, with prominent FMRFamide-like immunoreactivity in maximally four soma clusters associated with the accessory medulla and in most neuropils of the protocerebrum.
An unusual myosuppressin from the blood-feeding bug Rhodnius prolixus
TLDR
Physiological assays using Rhopr-MS indicate that, despite the unusual M at position 8, it still retains myoinhibitory activity, inhibiting the frequency and reducing the amplitude of contractions in the anterior midgut and hindgut, and decreasing heart rate.

Distribution of FMRFamide‐related peptides in the blood‐feeding bug Rhodnius prolixus
TLDR
The results suggest the existence of a number of FMRFamide‐related peptides in Rhodnius which may have roles in both central and peripheral transmission, may be released as neurohormones and may have endocrine functions in the gut.
Expression of the allatostatin gene in endocrine cells of the cockroach midgut.
TLDR
Allatostatins are an example of insect "brain-gut peptides" and it is suggested that their function may not be restricted to the regulation of juvenile hormone production.
Molecular characterization and expression analysis of Manduca sexta allatotropin.
TLDR
In situ hybridization and immunohistochemistry studies show that Mas AT is expressed in both the central and enteric nervous systems, and cells expressing Mas AT were identified in the brain, frontal ganglion and terminal ganglions.
Interspecific comparison of a Drosophila gene encoding FMRFamide- related neuropeptides
TLDR
The melanogaster gene encodes a precursor that contains 13 neuropeptides related to the molluscan tetrapeptide FMRFamide, and a similar set of immunoreactive neurons in the CNS of larvae from the 2 Drosophila species revealed.
Abundant distribution of locustatachykinin-like peptide in the nervous system and intestine of the cockroach Leucophaea maderae.
TLDR
All the LomTK-LI neurons of the central nervous system appear to be interneurons, suggesting a neuromodulatory role of the endogenous tachykinins.
