Unravelling the Evolution of the Allatostatin-Type A, KISS and Galanin Peptide-Receptor Gene Families in Bilaterians: Insights from Anopheles Mosquitoes
TLDR
It is hypothesised that the AST-A system in insects shared a common origin with the vertebrate KISS system and may also share a common function as an integrator of metabolism and reproduction.
Families of allatoregulator sequences: a 2011 perspective 1
TLDR
Genome and peptidome projects are uncovering new members of these families and it is clear that these structures are not just confined to Insecta but are found in a range of invertebrates.
More than two decades of research on insect neuropeptide GPCRs: an overview
TLDR
The present review gives a précis of the insect neuropeptide receptor research of the last two decades and it has to be emphasized that the work done so far is only the tip of the iceberg and the comprehensive understanding of these important signaling systems will still increase substantially in the coming years.
Allatostatin-C receptors in mosquitoes
Expression profile of genes encoding allatoregulatory neuropeptides in females of the spider Parasteatoda tepidariorum (Araneae, Theridiidae)
TLDR
This study is the first hint that the site of synthesis and secretion is fulfilled by similar structures as observed in other arthropods, and gives evidence that the general functions of the juvenile hormone synthesis, regulation of the digestive tract and ovaries action, and control of vitellogenesis process by the neuropeptides seem to be conserved among arthropODs.

Structural, functional, and evolutionary characterization of novel members of the allatostatin receptor family from insects.
By using degenerate primers based on known mammalian somatostatin receptors and the recently identified Drosophila allatostatin receptors (AlstR), we have cloned a novel receptor for the
Molecular cloning of the gene for the allatostatin family of neuropeptides from the cockroach Diploptera punctata.
TLDR
A cDNA from the cockroach Diploptera punctata is isolated that encodes a 41.5-kDa precursor polypeptide containing the AST family of peptides, and in situ hybridization indicated the AST-encoding gene is expressed in neurosecretory cells of D. punctata brain.
Molecular Cloning of a Functional Allatostatin Gut/Brain Receptor and an Allatostatin Preprohormone from the Silkworm Bombyx mori *
TLDR
This is the first report on the molecular cloning and functional expression of an insect gut/brain peptide hormone receptor and a Bombyx allatostatin preprohormone that contains eight different A-type all atostatins.
Molecular cloning and genomic organization of a second probable allatostatin receptor from Drosophila melanogaster.
TLDR
The Berkeley "Drosophila Genome Project" database was screened with "electronic probes" corresponding to the conserved regions of the four rat (delta, kappa, mu, nociceptin/orphanin FQ) opioid receptors and yielded alignment with a DrosophILA genomic database clone that contained a DNA sequence coding for a protein having, again, structural similarities with the rat galanin receptors.
Identification of four Drosophila allatostatins as the cognate ligands for the Drosophila orphan receptor DAR-2.
TLDR
It is suggested that DAR-2 mediates an allatostatin (drostatin)-induced inhibition of gut motility and is the first report on the permanent and functional expression of a Drosophila gut neurohormone receptor.
Comparison of the allatostatin neuropeptide precursors in the distantly related cockroaches Periplaneta americana and Diploptera punctata.
TLDR
Describing cDNA and genomic DNA sequences that specify a preproallatostatin precursor in the oviparous cockroach Periplaneta americana revealed several common features, including that the precursors are remarkably similar in size and the organization of the peptides within the precursor is conserved.
