Enlisting the Ixodes scapularis Embryonic ISE6 Cell Line to Investigate the Neuronal Basis of Tick—Pathogen Interactions
TLDR
The characterization of a complete Ixodes neuropeptidome in ISE6 cells may serve as an effective in vitro tool to study how tick-borne pathogens interact with synganglion components that are vital to tick physiology.
Identification and distribution of SIFamide in the nervous system of the desert locust Schistocerca gregaria
TLDR
The data suggest that the descending SIFamide‐immunoreactive neurons play a developmental role in organizing the insect central nervous system.
The defensin gene family expansion in the tick Ixodes scapularis.
Neuropeptide precursor gene discovery in the Chagas disease vector Rhodnius prolixus
TLDR
A straightforward workflow combining homology search in Rhodnius prolixus genome sequence with cloning by rapid amplification of cDNA ends and mass spectrometry is shown to achieve the first comprehensive genomic, transcriptomic and neuropeptidomic analysis of an insect disease vector.
Neuropeptide precursor gene discovery in the Chagas disease vector Rhodnius prolixus.
TLDR
A straightforward workflow combining homology search in Rhodnius prolixus genome sequence with cloning by rapid amplification of cDNA ends and mass spectrometry is shown to achieve the first comprehensive genomic, transcriptomic and neuropeptidomic analysis of an insect disease vector.
Transcriptome of the Female Synganglion of the Black-Legged Tick Ixodes scapularis (Acari: Ixodidae) with Comparison between Illumina and 454 Systems
TLDR
The diversity of messages predicting important genes identified in this study offers a valuable resource useful for understanding how the tick synganglion regulates important physiological functions.
Orcokinin-like immunoreactivity in central neurons innervating the salivary glands and hindgut of ixodid ticks
TLDR
The data provide further evidence of the presence of orcokinin in ixodid ticks and establish a morphological basis for functional studies of identified peptidergic neuronal networks.

TLDR
A complex network of central and peripheral peptidergic neurons, putative neurohaemal and neuromodulatory structures and endocrine cells in the tick comparable with those found in insect and crustacean neuroendocrine systems is revealed.

Two neuropeptides from synganglia of the hard tick, Ixodes sinensis (Acari: Ixodidae)
TLDR
Two neuropeptides were isolated from synganglia (central nervous system) of the hard tick, Ixodes sinensis and displayed strong antinociceptive effect in mice by a dose-dependent behavior, while neuropepeptide b had some relaxant effects on the isolated rat strip.
Tick neurobiology: recent advances and the post-genomic era
TLDR
The impact of mass gene sequencing, advances in bioinformatics and RNA-interference on target identification and validation, and the various tick neurotransmitter systems are described with emphasis on current knowledge of both existing and potential acaricide targets at the molecular level.
