Neuropeptide Mimetics: The Physiological Effects of Kinin and CAPA Analogs in Rhodnius prolixus

Neuropeptide Mimetics: The Physiological Effects of Kinin and CAPA Analogs in Rhodnius prolixus In the Chagas disease vector Rhodnius prolixus, the kinin and CAPA neuropeptides modulate a host of feeding and diuresis-related behaviours that are implicated in disease transmission. CAPA and kinin neuropeptide analogs have been developed to elicit potent changes in physiology, to be later incorporated in novel pest-control strategies. Here, the effects of kinin and CAPA analogs were investigated on feeding and diuresis-related tissues, with the kinin and…
