Histological sections of the brain, suboesophageal ganglion, and the corpora cardiaca/corpora allata complex were examined for the presence of crustacean hyperglycemic hormone-like immunoreactive material. With the use of an antiserum directed against the hyperglycemic hormone of Carcinus maenas, immunofluorescence was found in the median portion of the pars intercerebralis, and the corpora cardiaca. Extracts of corpora cardiaca were examined by radioimmunoassay for competitive binding to the antiserum; one pair of corpora cardiaca contains at least 7 pg crustacean hyperglycemic hormone-like material.
