... identified several head-expressed genes strongly responding to social isolation or enrichment. Of particular interest, social isolation downregulated expression of the gene encoding the neuropeptide Drosulfakinin (Dsk), the homologue of vertebrate cholecystokinin (CCK), which is critical for many mammalian...

.... Neuropeptide Vitellogenesis Endocrine The allatostatins (ASTs) are the most abundant neuropeptides in arthropods, which were named because of their inhibitory effect on juvenile hormone (JH) synthesis by the corpora allata in insects ( Stay and Tobe, 2007 ). Based on their distinct structural...

... in the lobster nervous system, we hypothesized that they might function as neuromodulators, as is common for neuropeptides. We thus asked whether AMGSEFLamide modulates the rhythmic outputs of the cardiac ganglion and the stomatogastric ganglion. Physiological recordings showed that AMGSEFLamide potently...

...Stefan Gründer; Marc Assmann; Peter A. V. Anderson Neurons either use electrical or chemical synapses to communicate with each other. Transmitters at chemical synapses are either small molecules or neuropeptides. After binding to their receptors, transmitters elicit postsynaptic potentials, which...
