Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Rabbit Serum E IC
Peptides belonging to the AKH/ RPCH family are produced in cells of either the corpora cardiaca (CC) of insects or of the X-organ cells in the eyestalks of decapod crustaceans. The adipokinetic hormon I (AKH I) (also named neuro-hormone D; Baumann and Penzlin, 1984) regulate energy homeostasis in insects. The hormone mobilizes energy reserves from storage particular from fat body. There is enough evidence to show that AKH regulates the balance of carbohydrate and lipid oxidation in flight muscles.
