The currently accepted model of moult control in crustaceans relies entirely on the hypothesis that moult-inhibiting hormone (MIH) and crustacean hyperglycaemic hormone (CHH) repress ecdysteroid synthesis of the target tissue (Y-organ) only during intermoult, and that changes in synthesis and/or release of these neurohormones are central to moult control. To further refine this model, we investigated the biological activities of these neuropeptides in the crab Carcinus maenas, at the target… CONTINUE READING
