Bombyxin, previously referred to as 4K-prothoracicotropic hormone, is a brain peptide of the silkmoth Bombyx mori, the amino acid sequence of which shows considerable homology with vertebrate insulin family peptides. Two independent clones have been isolated from a Bombyx larval brain cDNA library by using a synthetic oligonucleotide probe, one with the complete coding region for preprobombyxin (lambda Bb360) and the other covering the coding region, possibly for bombyxin, only partially… Expand
