Two neuropeptides with adipokinetic activity in Locusta migratoria and hypertrehalosaemic activity in Periplaneta americana were purified by high performance liquid chromatography from the corpus cardiacum of the Colorado potato beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata. The sequences of both peptides, designated Led-CC-I and Led-CC-II, were determined by pulsed-liquid phase sequencing employing Edman degradation after deblocking enzymatically the N-terminal pyroglutamate residue. The C-terminal of… CONTINUE READING
