Crustacean hyperglycemic hormone (CHH) is released from the X-organ/sinus gland complex located in the eyestalks, and regulates glucose levels in the hemolymph. In the giant freshwater prawn (Macrobrachium rosenbergii), two cDNAs encoding different CHH molecules were previously cloned by other workers. One of these (Mar-CHH-2) was expressed only in the eyestalks, whereas the other (Mar-CHH-L) was expressed in the heart, gills, antennal gland, and thoracic ganglion, but not in the eyestalks… CONTINUE READING
