Insect ecdysis is a hormonally programmed physiological sequence that enables insects to escape their old cuticle at the end of each developmental stage. The immediate events leading to ecdysis, which are initiated upon release of ecdysis-triggering hormones (ETH) into the bloodstream, include respiratory inflation and sequential stereotypic behaviors that facilitate shedding of the cuticle. Here we report that the Drosophila gene CG5911 encodes two functionally distinct subtypes of G protein… CONTINUE READING
