Family

Neuroparsin (IPR010850)

Short name: Neuroparsin

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].
