..., previously believed to occur through a decrease in the levels of the diuretic factors, indicates that an anti-diuretic hormone, with properties similar to CAP2b (pELYAFPRVamide;recently renamed Mas-CAPA-1), might also be present in R. prolixus . Here, we present evidence from immunohistochemical analysis...

.... An epithelial phenotype for norpA: phospholipase Cβ(PLCβ) is required for neuropeptide stimulation of principal and stellate cells. Fluid transport assays were performed on intact tubules from wild-type(Oregon R), norpAH52 and norpAP24flies as described in the Materials and methods. Either (A) 10-7moll-1 CAP2b...
