Presence and activity of a Dippu-DH31-like peptide in the blood-feeding bug, Rhodnius prolixus.

Abstract

The blood-feeding bug, Rhodnius prolixus, ingests large blood meals, then undergoes a period of rapid diuresis which is under neurohormonal control. In both cockroach (Diploptera punctata) and fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster) a calcitonin-like DH31 neuropeptide has been identified [Coast GM, Webster SG, Schegg KM, Tobe SS, Schooley DA.
