The emergence of neuropeptides as a prominent neurotransmitter class raises fundamental new questions about modes of chemical signaling in the nervous system. These relate to the large number of peptides, their co-localization in neurons and to novel actions at innervated targets. Synaptic preparations in insects offer excellent experimental models for studies of multiple transmitters and their joint actions at uniquely identified nerve-muscle junctions. Peptidergic systems in insects are… CONTINUE READING
