Front image:PTTH secreting neuroendocrine cells in the brain of a moth were stained w/ an immunofluorescent dye. Secrete PTTH into hemolymph -involved in insect metamorphosisProthoracicotropic hormone (PTTH) is a neurohormone released from the brain in some invertebrates that stimulates the prothoracic glands to secrete ecdysone. Interestingly, PTTH is a peptide that is evolutionarily related to insulin.Ecdysone = a steroid hormone that controls molting in insects and other arthropods.
Lecture delivery for the end of term•In this lecture you will see that there are 2x the number of slides that are normally posted for a lecture in this class –this is not additional content but offers space to account for the content that would have been read aloud in lecture. •I have provided the content in text that would help you understand the images in the presentation and that would help you prepare for the final exam•Questions about lecture content can be placed on the discussion board for that lecture –the discussion board will be open for 1 week after the lecture is posted. Hopefully this will ensure that content is understood.
