Molecular characterization and cell‐specific expression of a Manduca sexta FLRFamide gene
TLDR
Molecular characterization of the F10 gene has provided insights into its regulation and cell‐specific distribution that will enhance the understanding of how these FaRPs modulate different physiological systems and ultimately behavior.
Identification of Myotropic Neuropeptides from the Brain and Corpus Cardiacum-Corpus Allatum Complex of the Beetle, Zophobas atratus
TLDR
The neuropeptide profiles of the two major neuro-endocrinological organs, brain and retrocerebral complex corpus cardiacum-corpus allatum of adult beetles were analyzed, revealing several cardiostimulatory and cardioinhibitory factors from both the brain and CC/CA.
Myotropic activity and immunolocalization of selected neuropeptides of the burying beetle Nicrophorus vespilloides (Coleoptera: Silphidae)
TLDR
One of the physiological activities of proctolin, myosuppressin, Nicve‐MS, myoinhibitory peptide (Trica‐MIP‐5) and the short neuropeptide F (Nicve‐sNPF) in N. vespilloides have been investigated and alignments of amino acid sequences of these neuropepeptides in beetle species showed amino acid sequence similarities between neuropePTides.
New physiological activities of myosuppressin, sulfakinin and NVP-like peptide in Zophobas atratus beetle
TLDR
The present work showed pleiotropic activity of three neuropeptides and indicates that the visceral muscle contractions and the haemolymph sugar homeostasis in Z. atratus are regulated by complex mechanisms.

In situ hybridization analysis of leucomyosuppressin mRNA expression in the cockroach, Diploptera punctata
TLDR
Immunohistochemistry with a polyclonal antiserum generated against FMRFamide, but which recognizes extended RFamide peptides, demonstrated numerous RFamide‐like immunoreactive cells and processes in both nervous and nonnervous tissues, suggesting that LMS may play a central role in Diploptera and may be associated with feeding and digestion.
Peptidergic innervation and endocrine cells of insect midgut
TLDR
Investigations on Galleria revealed that the gut innervation persists during midgut reconstruction in the course of metamorphosis, and all insects seem to contain antigens that can be detected with antisera to pancreatic polypeptide, FMRFamide, enkephalins, and vasopressins.
Distribution of FMRFamide‐related peptides in the blood‐feeding bug Rhodnius prolixus
TLDR
The results suggest the existence of a number of FMRFamide‐related peptides in Rhodnius which may have roles in both central and peripheral transmission, may be released as neurohormones and may have endocrine functions in the gut.
Insect Myosuppressins and Sulfakinins Stimulate Release of the Digestive Enzyme α‐Amylase in Two Invertebrates: The Scallop Pecten maximus and Insect Rhynchophorus ferrugineus
TLDR
Members of the myosuppressin and sulfakinin family affect insect muscles, being potent inhibitors of cardiac and visceral muscle in addition to having effects on skeletal muscle and salivary glands.
