Insulin receptor regulates food intake through sulfakinin signaling in the red flour beetle, Tribolium castaneum.

Abstract

Insects obtain energy and nutrients via feeding to support growth and development. The insulin signaling pathway is involved in the regulation of feeding; however, the underlying mechanisms are not fully understood. Here, we show that insulin signaling regulates food intake via crosstalk with neuropeptide sulfakinin in the red flour beetle, Tribolium… (More)
