Receptor guanylyl cyclases in Inka cells targeted by eclosion hormone.

PNAS, Jul 28, 2009

A signature of eclosion hormone (EH) action in insect ecdysis is elevation of cGMP in Inka cells, leading to massive release of ecdysis triggering hormone (ETH) and ecdysis initiation. Although this aspect of EH-induced signal transduction is well known, the receptor mediating this process has not been identified.
