GnRH-Related Neurohormones in the Fruit Fly Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
From a protein evolution standpoint, the GnRH/AKH/CRZ family nicely demonstrates the developmental process of neuropeptide signaling systems emerging from a putative common ancestor and leading to divergent activities in distal phyla.
Leucokinin and Associated Neuropeptides Regulate Multiple Aspects of Physiology and Behavior in Drosophila
  • D. Nässel
  • Biology
    International journal of molecular sciences
  • 2021
TLDR
Drosophila data on embryonic lineages of LK neurons, functional roles of individual LK neuron types, interactions with other peptidergic systems, and orchestrating functions of Lk are summarized.
Cholecystokinin/sulfakinin peptide signaling: conserved roles at the intersection between feeding, mating and aggression
TLDR
Understanding of SK signaling mechanisms in regulation of satiety and feeding, but also in gustatory sensitivity, locomotor activity, aggression and reproductive behavior in genetically tractable fly Drosophila is advanced.
Structure and Physiology of the Neuropeptidergic System of Triatomines
  • S. Ons, M. Sterkel
  • Biology
    Triatominae - The Biology of Chagas Disease Vectors
  • 2021
TLDR
A comprehensively review the triatomine neuropeptidergic system and compare the results obtained for the different species studied to date, proposing both conserved and species-specific characteristics for the subfamily.
Evolution of Neuropeptide Precursors in Polyneoptera (Insecta)
TLDR
It is confirmed that the extent of sequence conservation across Polyneoptera is remarkably different between the different neuropeptides, and the average evolutionary distance for the single-copy neuropeptic precursors differs significantly between the polyneopteran orders.
RNAi-based screens uncover a potential new role for the orphan neuropeptide receptor Moody in Drosophila female germline stem cell maintenance
TLDR
It is found that the orphan neuropeptide receptor encoded by moody (homologous to mammalian melatonin receptors) is likely required in somatic cells for normal egg production and proper germline stem cell maintenance, but the egg laying screens had low signal-to-noise ratio and did not lead to the identification of additional candidates.
Interorgan communication through peripherally derived peptide hormones in Drosophila
TLDR
Recent advances in understanding target organs/tissues and functions of peripherally derived peptide hormones in Drosophila are summarized and how these hormones contribute to various biological events through interorgan communications are described.
Hormonal axes in Drosophila: regulation of hormone release and multiplicity of actions
TLDR
This review outlines the major peptidergic hormonal pathways known in Drosophila and presents a set of schemes of hormonal axes and orchestrating peptiders that act at a higher hierarchical level in the animal with roles as organizers that globally orchestrate metabolism, physiology and behavior.

Neuropeptide Receptor Transcriptome Reveals Unidentified Neuroendocrine Pathways
TLDR
The comprehensive cloning of neuropeptide G protein-coupled receptors from the silkworm, Bombyx mori, and systematic analyses of their expression confirm the effectiveness of a systematic analysis of the receptor transcriptome, not only in characterizing orphan receptors, but also in identifying novel players and hidden mechanisms in important biological processes.
Drosophila Short Neuropeptide F Regulates Food Intake and Body Size*
TLDR
Findings indicate that the sNPF is expressed in the nervous systems to control food intake and regulate body size in Drosophila melanogaster.
Modulation of Drosophila post-feeding physiology and behavior by the neuropeptide leucokinin
TLDR
It is found that impaired LK signaling in Lk and Lk receptor (Lkr) mutants affects diverse but coordinated processes, including regulation of stress, water homeostasis, feeding, locomotor activity, and metabolic rate, and the calcium activity in abdominal ganglia LK neurons, but not in the two sets of brain neurons, increases specifically following water consumption.
Metabolic Stress Responses in Drosophila Are Modulated by Brain Neurosecretory Cells That Produce Multiple Neuropeptides
TLDR
The data suggest that homeostasis during metabolic stress requires intact peptide signaling by ipc-1 and 2a neurosecretory cells, a mix of colocalized peptides with seemingly unrelated functions.
Neuropeptides and neuropeptide receptors in the Drosophila melanogaster genome.
TLDR
The recently completed Drosophila genome sequence for G protein-coupled receptors sensitive to bioactive peptides (peptide GPCRs) is scanned and 44 genes are described that represent the vast majority, and perhaps all, of the peptide G PCRs encoded in the fly genome.
Neuropeptides as Regulators of Behavior in Insects.
TLDR
It is concluded that multiple neuropeptides need to work in concert to coordinate certain behaviors in insects and that most neuropePTides studied to date have more than a single function.
FMRFamide neuropeptides and neuropeptide‐associated enzymes in Drosophila
  • P. Taghert
  • Biology
    Microscopy research and technique
  • 1999
TLDR
This chapter focuses on the biology of FMRFamide‐related neuropeptides in Drosophila, and histochemical procedures to evaluate this neuronal phenotype and its regulation, including descriptions of promoter activity, and RNA and peptide distributions.
