The Lottia gigantea genome was prospected for the presence of genes coding neuropeptides and neurohormones. Four genes code insulin-related peptides: two genes code molluscan insulin-like growth hormones, one gene an insulin very similar to vertebrate insulin, and the fourth a peptide related to drosophila insulin-like peptide 7. Four other genes encode the cysteine-knot proteins GPA2/GPB5 and bursicon/parabursicon. Another 37 genes code for precursors of the following neuropeptides: achatin… Expand

Genomics, transcriptomics, and peptidomics of Daphnia pulex neuropeptides and protein hormones.
We report 43 novel genes in the water flea Daphnia pulex encoding 73 predicted neuropeptide and protein hormones as partly confirmed by RT-PCR. MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry identified 40 neuropeptidesExpand
In silico cloning of genes encoding neuropeptides, neurohormones and their putative G-protein coupled receptors in a spider mite.
TLDR
The genome of the spider mite was prospected for the presence of genes coding neuropeptides, neurohormones and their putative G-protein coupled receptors and fifty one candidate genes were found to encode neuropeptic genes, with results indicating that some have orthologs in hemimetabolous insect species, crustaceans or ticks, for others such arthropod homologs are currently unknown.

TLDR
Both spiders and the scorpion have an achatin gene and in spiders there are two different genes encoding myosuppressin-like peptides while spiders also have two genes encoding novel LGamides, while neuropeptide genes that seem to be orthologs of Lottia LFRYamide and Platynereis CCRFamide were also found.

Neuropeptides and polypeptide hormones in echinoderms: new insights from analysis of the transcriptome of the sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus.
TLDR
The first extensive survey of neuropeptide and peptide hormone precursors in a species belonging to the class Holothuroidea is reported, which may have practical and economic impact by providing a basis for neuroendocrine-based strategies to improve methods of aquaculture. Expand
The neuropeptide transcriptome of a model echinoderm, the sea urchin Strongylocentrotus purpuratus.
TLDR
The identification of 20 cDNAs encoding putative neuropeptide precursors in the sea urchin Strongylocentrotus purpuratus (Phylum Echinodermata), providing new insights on the evolution and diversity of Neuropeptides. Expand

TLDR
To the best of my knowledge, this work represents the first genome-wide search for neuropeptide precursors in any ecdysozoan species outside arthropods and nematodes, and is a necessary first step towards understanding neuropePTide function in tardigrades. Expand
The contribution of the genomes of a termite and a locust to our understanding of insect neuropeptides and neurohormones
The genomes of the migratory locust Locusta migratoria and the termite Zootermopsis nevadensis were mined for the presence of genes encoding neuropeptides, neurohormones, and their G-protein coupledExpand

  • 2015
TLDR
The recently identified crustacean female sex hormone was also found and in the crayfish appears to be not only expressed in the eyestalk, but in the ovary as well (though not in the testis), and CNMamide, calcitonin, CCRFamide, natalisin, trissin and relaxin appear to be new crustaceans neuropeptides.

In silico prediction of neuropeptides from the neural ganglia of Pacific abalone Haliotis discus hannai (Mollusca: Gastropoda)
TLDR
A novel insight is provided for further functional studies of abalone and other gastropod mollusks that shows that most of their biologically active residues were highly conserved with other invertebrate homologous neuropeptide residues. Expand

Genomics, transcriptomics, and peptidomics of neuropeptides and protein hormones in the red flour beetle Tribolium castaneum.
TLDR
The authors' analysis of Tribolium indicates that, during insect evolution, genes for neuropeptides and protein hormones are often duplicated or lost. Expand
The unique evolution of neuropeptide genes in the silkworm Bombyx mori.
TLDR
Results suggest that unique duplication and differential expression of several neuropeptide genes occurred during the evolution in Bombyx, which may be an effective mechanism for functional diversification of conserved Neuropeptides. Expand

TLDR
The isolation and characterization of a cDNA clone that encodes a multipeptide preprohormone expressed in the anterior lobe of the right cerebral ganglion, in a group of neurons that principally innervate the penial complex is described. Expand
A novel neuropeptide precursor gene is expressed in the terrestrial snail central nervous system by a group of neurons that control mating behavior.
TLDR
Analysis of the expression of the preproGFAD gene shows that it is neurospecific and expressed in several groups of CNS neurons, indicating that it participates in the regulation of male mating behavior. Expand
Molecular cloning of a cDNA encoding the neuropeptides APGWamide and cerebral peptide 1: Localization of APGWamide‐like immunoreactivity in the central nervous system and male reproductive organs of Aplysia
TLDR
Cloned and sequenced a cDNA that encodes a precursor protein, the predicted posttranslational processing of which presumably generates nine copies of the neuropeptide Ala‐Pro‐Gly‐Trp‐NH2 (APGWamide), five connecting peptide sequences, and a C‐terminal peptide, suggesting that APGWamide may play a role in regulating male reproductive function in Aplysia, as it does in other gastropods. Expand
Molecular cloning, expression pattern, and immunocytochemical localization of a gonadotropin-releasing hormone-like molecule in the gastropod mollusk, Aplysia californica.
TLDR
The isolation of the full-length cDNA of a GnRH-like molecule from the central nervous system of a gastropod mollusk, the sea hare Aplysia californica, provides valuable support for an ancient origin of GnRH during metazoan evolution and refute the possibility that oct-GnRH arose singly in cephalopods by convergent evolution.

TLDR
Data confirm that LyCEP is an RFamide ligand for GRL106, and shows significant similarity to the Achatina cardioexcitatory peptide as well as to the recently identified family of mammalian prolactin-releasing peptides. Expand

A genome-wide inventory of neurohormone GPCRs in the red flour beetle Tribolium castaneum
TLDR
The survey of 340 million years of insect neurohormone GPCR evolution shows that neuropeptide/receptor couples can easily duplicate or disappear during insect evolution and shows that Drosophila is not a good representative of all insects, because several of the hormonal systems that the authors now find in Tribolium do not exist in Dosophila.

TLDR
The data presented here demonstrate that the typical organization of the prohormones of the vasopressin/oxytocin superfamily must have been present in the common ancestors of vertebrates and invertebrates. Expand
