Abstract [en]

Research on crustacean peptides has concentrated mainly on decapods and isopods, and a growing number of >200 peptides have been sequenced from these two groups, the majority from decapods, but recently, the annotation of the Daphnia pulexgenome has contributed many more novel peptides many of which were also sequenced de novo. Identified and bioactive crustacean peptides — the only ones reported here — regulate a large range of physiological functions, including color change, activities of heart, exoskeletal and visceral muscles, metabolic function, development, metamorphosis, and reproduction.
