The Periplaneta americana allatostatin precursor encodes 14 distinctive allatostatin-like peptides (ASTs) including two previously characterized. Each of the predicted P. americana ASTs (Peastatins) has been tested for biological activity in vitro. A number have also been tested in vivo. Northern blot analyses of specific AST mRNA sequences have been used to study the tissue- and stage-specificity of production of ASTs at selected times during development.
