MALDI Imaging Analysis of Neuropeptides in Africanized Honeybee (Apis mellifera) Brain: Effect of Aggressiveness
Aggressiveness in honeybees seems to be regulated by multiple genes, under the influence of different factors, such as polyethism of workers, environmental factors, and response to alarm pheromones, creating a series of ...
Effect of β-adrenoceptors on the behaviour induced by the neuropeptide glutamic acid isoleucine amide
(Elsevier Science, 2007-07)
Excessive grooming behaviour is induced by intracerebroventricular injections of the neuropeptide glutamic acid isoleucine amide (neuropeptide-EI), via the activation of A-10 dopaminergic neurons and the noradrenergic ...
MALDI Imaging Analysis of Neuropeptides in the Africanized Honeybee (Apis mellifera) Brain: Effect of Ontogeny
(Amer Chemical Soc, 2014-06-01)
The occurrence and spatial distribution of the neuropeptides AmTRP-5 and AST-1 in the honeybee brain were monitored via MALDI spectral imaging according to the ontogeny of Africanized Apis mellifera. The levels of these ...
Relationship between levels of neuropeptide Substance P in periodontal disease and chronic pain: a literature review
The aim of the current review was to investigate the relationship between levels of neuropeptide Substance P in periodontal disease and chronic pain. Substance P is a neuropeptide that is directly related with pain. In ...
The Drosophila Neuropeptides PDF and sNPF Have Opposing Electrophysiological and Molecular Effects on Central Neurons
(American Physiological Society, 2014-03)
Neuropeptides have widespread effects on behavior, but how these molecules alter the activity of their target cells is poorly understood. We employed a new model system in Drosophila melanogaster to assess the electrophysiological ...
Glucocorticoids are required for meal-induced changes in the expression of hypothalamic neuropeptides
(CHURCHILL LIVINGSTONEEDINBURGH, 2012)
Glucocorticoid deficiency is associated with a decrease of food intake. Orexigenic peptides, neuropeptide Y (NPY) and agouti related protein (AgRP), and the anorexigenic peptide proopiomelanocortin (POMC), expressed in the ...
Quantitative Autoradiographic Characterization of Receptors for Angiotensin II and Other Neuropeptides in Individual Brain Nuclei and Peripheral Tissues from Single Rats
