The brain neuropeptide prothoracicotropic hormone (PTTH) stimulates a rapid increase in ecdysteroid hormone synthesis that is accompanied by general and specific increases in protein synthesis, including that of a 70 kDa cognate heat shock protein (hsc 70). To further understand the possible roles of hsc 70, hsc 70 cDNA clones were isolated from a tobacco hornworm (Manduca sexta) prothoracic gland cDNA library. All sequenced clones were highly homologous to the Drosophila hsc 70-4 isoform… CONTINUE READING
