allatostatinmedical dictionary


Peptide hormones produced by the corpora allata of insects that reversibly inhibit the production of juvenile hormone. Similar peptides are found in other Phyla. Allatostatin 4, smallest of the family, is DRLYSFGL amide. Allatostatins may also be produced in other insect tissues, particularly mid gut.
