Brain-derived neurotrophic factor-like neuropeptide is secreted as a neurohormone from specific brain neurons into the corpus allatum in the silkworm Bombyx mori






Entomological Research 36(1): 16-19

Brain-derived neurotrophic factor-like neuropeptide is secreted as a neurohormone from specific brain neurons into the corpus allatum in the silkworm Bombyx mori

The aim of this study was to investigate the secretion of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF)-like neuropeptide in the silkworm, Bombyx mori, by using immunocytochemical techniques on the brain and retrocerebral complex of fifth instar larvae.
