Structure-function studies on hypertrehalosaemic and adipokinetic hormones: activity of naturally occurring analogues and some N- and C-terminal modified analogues


, : Structure-function studies on hypertrehalosaemic and adipokinetic hormones: activity of naturally occurring analogues and some N- and C-terminal modified analogues. Physiological Entomology 15(3): 299-316

The relative potencies, with respect to mobilization of lipids in Locusta migratoria and in Schistocerca gregaria, and of carbohydrates in Periplaneta americana, of 11 naturally occurring members of the adipokinetic hormone/red pigment-concentrating hormone peptide family (AKH/RPCH-family) and analogues that lacked the N-terminal pyroglutamate residue or had a free threonine acid at the C-terminus instead of an amide were assessed.

OKN tends to be asymmetric in amblyopia, leading to suggestions of...
