..., however, several polar compounds (mainly peptides) have been found in addition to CHCs both on the cuticle and on the comb surface of social insects, and their semiochemical role has been demonstrated in some circumstances. In the present study, we used the paper wasp social parasite–host system Polistes...

... factors (either peptides or neuromodulators) are produced in the brain and thoracic ganglia (TG). Two other regulatory non-peptide compounds, the steroid ecdysone and the sesquiterpene MF, are produced by the Y-organs and the mandibular organs, respectively. In the current review, I have tried...

..., we examined peptides isolated from venom ducts to elucidate the sequences and post-translational modifications of two eight-cysteine toxins (cal12a and cal12b of type 12 framework) that block voltage-gated Na + channels. Based on homology of leader sequence and mode of action, these toxins...

...BRIAN A. CUTHBERT; PETER D. EVANS 1. The responses of the semi-isolated heart preparation of the locust to the peptide FMRFamide and a range of its analogues is described. 2. The nature of the response observed depended on the structure of the analogue and its concentration. In some cases...

...PETER D. EVANS; CAMILLA M. MYERS 1. The modulatory actions of FMRFamide and related peptides on tension generated in the extensor-tibiae muscle of the locust hindleg by stimulation of the slow excitatory motor neurone (SETi) depend upon the frequency of stimulation of SETi. They have no effect...

... acetylcholine and an FMRFamide-like peptide); the Retzius cells (which contain serotonin); and the pressure sensory neurones, which contain an unidentified transmitter. Heart motoneurones (HE) and anterior pagoda (AP) cells in culture reacted with antiserum against the peptide FMRFamide. The immunoreactive...

... and the modulation of these effects by biogenic amines and peptides. The extensor-tibiae muscle of the hind leg of the locust is a much studied, large muscle that is innervated by three identified motor neurones and one identified modulatory neurone. Much attention has recently been focused on the modulation...
