Family

Neuroparsin (IPR010850)

Short name: Neuroparsin

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

None.

Family relationships

None.

Description

This family consists of several locust specific neuroparsin proteins. Neuroparsins are produced by the A1 type of protocerebral median neurosecretory cells of the PI-CC system and display pleiotropic activities: inhibition of the effect of juvenile hormone, stimulation of fluid reabsorption of isolated recta, induction of an increase in hemolymph lipid and trehalose levels, and neurotrophic effects [PMID: 9114464].
