A Novel Octopamine Receptor with Preferential Expression inDrosophila Mushroom Bodies
TLDR
The preferential expression of OAMB in mushroom bodies and its capacity to produce cAMP accumulation suggest an important role in synaptic modulation underlying behavioral plasticity.
Insect octopamine receptors: a new classification scheme based on studies of cloned Drosophila G-protein coupled receptors
TLDR
In future studies on the molecular basis of octopamine signalling in individual tissues it will be essential to identify the relative expression levels of the different classes ofOctopamine receptor present to identify if co-expression of such receptors in the same cells results in the formation of oligomeric receptors with specific emergent pharmacological and signalling properties.

TLDR
Competitive binding data and toxicity data suggest a correlation between cellular changes induced by tested plant essential oils and their toxicity against fruit fly and American cockroach.
Effects of octopamine on lipolysis, glucose transport and amine oxidation in mammalian fat cells.
Stimulation and Attenuation Effects of Neuroactive Amines oncAMP Production in Two-spotted Mites Membranes
TLDR
It’s found that DA, which has similar structure with octopamine except its m-hydroxyl group in the phenyl ring, could significantly inhibit the cAMP production at above 10mM concentration.
A family of octapamine receptors that specifically induce cyclic AMP production or Ca2+ release in Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
The functional characterization of two genes from Drosophila melanogaster that encode unique receptors that display signature properties of native octopamine receptors are described.
Trace Amines and Their Receptors
TLDR
In the brain, TAAR1 acts as a rheostat of dopaminergic, glutamatergic, and serotonergic neurotransmission and has been identified as a novel therapeutic target for schizophrenia, depression, and addiction, and in the periphery,TAAR1 regulates nutrient-induced hormone secretion, suggesting its potential as a Novel therapeutic targets for diabetes and obesity.

TLDR
Because octopamine-2 receptors appear to be present primarily in invertebrates, these findings raise the possibility that potent and selectiveOctopamine agonists could be useful as insect toxins with low toxicity in vertebrates.

TLDR
The results are discussed in terms of the location of the various classes of octopamine receptors, their possible relationship to vertebrate alpha‐adrenoreceptors, and the significance of the results for studies on octopamines receptors in the vertebrate central nervous system.
Phenyliminoimidazolidine Derivatives Activate Both Octopamine1 and Octopamine2 Receptor Subtypes in Locust Skeletal Muscle
TLDR
The actions of the phenyliminoimidazolidine derivatives, NC7 and NC5 on octopamine receptors in the extensor-tibiae neuromuscular preparation of the locust are described, suggesting they may be useful in the development of selective agonists that can distinguish between the different pharmacological subclasses ofOctopamine receptor.
Octopamine in insects: neurotransmitter, neurohormone, and neuromodulator
TLDR
It is shown that octopamine can act as a neurotransmitter, a neurohormone, and a neuromodulator within the nervous system of invertebrates and in locusts, an identified octopaminergic neuron innervates the extensor-tibiae muscle of the hind legs.
