Insect Neuropeptides: Chemistry, Biology, and Action (ACS Symposium Series): Medicine & Health Science Books @ 54 rows  Insect neuropeptides are involved in a variety of host functions, including energy . The insect neuropeptides and its receptors are a promising target for a novel generation of insecticides, which offer improved selectivity and environmental compatibility (Scherkenbeck and Zdobinsky, ). The knowledge of neuropeptide system provides the tools for the design of peptidomimetics, pseudopeptides or small molecules capable of Cited by: There are many agents that regulate immunology, reproduction, growth and development or metabolism. Hence, it seems that insects may be a source of numerous substances useful in human diseases treatment. Especially important in the regulation of insect physiology are peptides, like neuropeptides, peptide hormones or antimicrobial by: 5.

The novel insect control agents are also developed based on backbone cyclic (BBC) peptidomimetic antagonists of insect-neuropeptides. In this review, backbone cyclic PK⁄ PBAN neuropeptide.

Neuropeptides are typically derived from larger precursor molecules, which undergo posttranslational processing and sometimes modifications to yield mature peptides (see Figure 1).A single neuropeptide precursor molecule can give rise to a single neuropeptide, multiple distinct neuropeptides, multiple copies of a single neuropeptide, or any combination thereof.
