Regulation of cyclic GMP elevation in the developing antennal lobe of the Sphinx moth, Manduca sexta.

In the moth, Manduca sexta, 3',5'-guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) is transiently elevated during adult development in about 100 neurons of the antennal lobe. We demonstrate that nearly all of these neurons are local interneurons of the lateral cluster I, that their capacity to show a strong cGMP response during development is regulated by the steroid hormone… CONTINUE READING
