Opioid peptides have been revealed in representatives of practically all large taxonomic groups of invertebrates, and the opiate receptors are found even in unicellulars. The opioid system seems to belong to the evolutionary ancient signal systems. The comparative data indicate that the most conservative and ancient function of opioids is control of the adequate level of protective reactions. In the infusorian Stentor the opiate ligands suppress a contractile response to mechanical stimulation… Expand
The effect of opioids and their antagonists on the nocifensive response of Caenorhabditis elegans to noxious thermal stimuli
TLDR
The effect of the opiate morphine and opioid neuropeptides Endomorphin 1 and 2 on the thermal avoidance (Tav) behavior of Caenorhabditis elegans is explored and Naloxone and CTOP were tested in combination with the drugs. Expand
Involvement of the opioid system in the hypokinetic state induced in cockroaches by a parasitoid wasp
TLDR
The venom of A. compressa might contribute to the manipulation of cockroach behavior by affecting the opioid system, which is known to affect responsiveness to stimuli in insects. Expand
Assessing the Potential for Pain in Crustaceans and Other Invertebrates
TLDR
Available data go beyond the idea of just nociception, but the impossibility of total proof of pain means they are not definitive, Nevertheless, more humane care for invertebrates is suggested. Expand
Effects of several exorphins and endorphins on the escape reaction of the cockroach Periplaneta americana under elevated temperature conditions
TLDR
It has been shown that ED50 decreases statistically significantly with increase of the length of the peptide molecule and its affinity to opioid receptors of the κ-type, which might indicate a specific ability of some plant proteins to regulate (decrease) the insect protective behavior. Expand
Pain and stress in crustaceans
Abstract We consider evidence that crustaceans might experience pain and stress in ways that are analogous to those of vertebrates. Various criteria are applied that might indicate a potential forExpand
Role of the Opioid System in the Modulation of Thermonociceptive Sensitivity of Mollusks Affected by Weak Electromagnetic Factors
We studied the role of the opioid system in the modulation of thermonociceptive sensitivity of Helix albestens mollusks subjected within a 21-day-long period to the conditions of electromagneticExpand
Drosophila reward system - A summary of current knowledge
TLDR
A hypothetical hierarchy of the levels of reinforcement processing in response to particular stimuli, and the parallel processes that take place concurrently is proposed, and it is proposed that the possible presence of activity-silencing and meta-satiety inducing levels in Drosophila should be further investigated. Expand
No evidence of morphine analgesia to noxious shock in the shore crab, Carcinus maenas
TLDR
This work uses a paradigm in which shore crabs receive a shock in a preferred dark shelter but not if they remain in an unpreferred light area, and questions the utility of this criterion of pain and suggests instead that behavioural criteria be employed. Expand
Pheromones in a superorganism: from gene to social regulation.
TLDR
The different pheromones regulating the main biological functions of the superorganism are reviewed and their respective action on the genome, physiology and behavior of nestmates are detailed. Expand
Feeding live invertebrate prey in zoos and aquaria: Are there welfare concerns?
TLDR
The current research regarding invertebrates' capacity for suffering is discussed and methods facilities can use to improve the welfare of their invertebrate live prey are discussed. Expand

Slugs and snails and opiate tales: opioids and feeding behavior in invertebrates.
TLDR
Results of studies examining the feeding responses of molluscs and arthropods treated with various opiate agonists and antagonists indicate that delta, kappa, mu, and possibly sigma opioid systems differentially and selectively mediate the components of their natural feeding behavior. Expand
The opiate system in invertebrates
The presence in diverse species of a similar mode of communication, that of a soluble messenger binding to a receptor, raises the question as to whether the specific components of this system areExpand
Opiate agonists activate feeding in Limax: comparison of in vivo and in vitro effects.
TLDR
Experiments with the mu agonist morphine and the kappa agonist U50,488H showed that the probability of feeding, but not meal size, was increased by morphine injection into intact animals, whereas the length of feeding motor program responses elicited from the isolated lip-brain preparation of Limax was augmented by U50-488H. Expand
A neuroimmunoregulatory-like mechanism responding to stress in the marine bivalve Mytilus edulis
TLDR
The cellular response to "stress" observed is the same as that to the administration of exogenous mammalian opioid peptides, which strongly suggests that under the conditions of stressful stimuli, the immune/defense system can be altered by endogenous neuropeptides. Expand
The effects of opioid and FMRF-amide peptides on thermal behavior in the snail
TLDR
The results indicate that opioid and FMRE-amide peptides may be involved in the determination of thermal behavior in the snail and suggest that FMRF-amidepeptides may function as endogenous modulators of opioid activity. Expand
Opiate effect on the threat display in the crab Carnicus mediterraneus
TLDR
These results and those previously obtained as the action of GABA on the LMD of this crab are discussed in connection with results reporting a similar effect of these drugs on another agonistic item of behavior in the crab Chasmagnatus granulatus. Expand
Evidence for dopaminergic and opioid involvement in the regulation of locomotor activity in the land crab Gecarcinus lateralis.
TLDR
Computerized analysis of the crabs locomotor behavior revealed an initial increase in activity followed by a gradual decrease over a 12 min observation period, which suggests the presence of an opioid modulation mechanism in the regulation of locomotor activity. Expand
Evidence for opioid and non-opioid forms of stress-induced analgesia in the snail, Cepaea nemoralis
TLDR
Results indicate that this mollusc displays both opioid and non-opioid forms of stress-induced analgesia in a manner analogous to that reported for mammals. Expand
Demonstration, characterization and localization of opioid binding sites in the midgut of the insectLeucophaea maderae (Blattaria)
TLDR
The results strongly suggest the existence in the digestive tract of this invertebrate of opioid receptors comparable to those in analogous mammalian systems. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest the presence of kappa-like opioid receptors in Leucophaea cerebral ganglia and the kappa ligands also are potent in enhancing locomotor activity in addition to being weakly antagonized by naloxone. Expand
