Allatostatin II (9). (Dip-AST II) Neuropeptides that inhibit juvenile hormone (JH) synthesis by the corpora allata have been isolated from brains of the virgin female cockroach Diploptera punctata. This.ubiquitous family of peptides within the invertebrates, regulates a range of important physiological processes. The functional processes, by either neural or humoral routes of action, include the inhibition of endocrine function, interneuronal functions, neuromodulatory roles, myotropic and myoendocrine roles, and direct action on biosynthetic pathways. The myomodulatory function appears to be conserved through evolutionary time.

Storage and Stability:
Lyophilized powder may be stored at 4C for short-term only. Stable for 12 months at -20C. Reconstitute to nominal volume (see reconstitution instructions for peptides) and store at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
