This rabbit polyclonal antibody was generated against Drosophila melanogaster Adiopokinetic Hormone (AKH) and recognizes AKH from Drosophila melanogaster, Aedes aegypti, Anopheles gambiae, and Rhodnius prolixus.
Adiopokinetic Hormone (AKH) is a short peptide hormone that has been studied in insects. The neuropeptides that mobilize stored fuels for flight in insects, and thus, may regulate flight by mosquitoes that transmit pathogens of human diseases.
