1997), consistent with the presumption that EH peptide stores are being released (cf. Truman and Copenhaver, 1989). To produce their releasing activities, EH and ETH act as hormones. In contrast, TK- and 1. , 1998). A final component of the neuropeptide hierarchy controlling ecdysial behaviors is CCAP, which is released by a set of segmentally repeated, CNS neurons following increases in intracellular cGMP levels (Ewer and Truman, 1996). Gammie and Truman (1999) presented evidence to argue that EH acts directly on CCAP neurons (or on neurons presynaptic to them) to cause CCAP release.

Virilis (Taghert and Schneider, 1990). Hence the likelihood of a homology-based identification is reduced as the lengths of homologous sequences are so restricted. Thus homologs of the smaller neuropeptides, if they are present in Drosophila, will need to be characterized chemically before their gene can be identified. For example, the structural similarity between the locustatachykinins and the vertebrate tachykinins is so limited that, if it were not for their respective receptors (which do show clear homologies), the arguments for their common evolutionary origin would be rather weak.
