    Oxidative stress (OS) evokes a homeostasis imbalance in living organisms and the endocrine system headed up by adipokinetic hormones (AKH) plays a crucial role in mobilization of defense processes: there is a feedback regulation between OS and the level of AKH in the insect body, and external AKH significantly reduces the biomarkers of OS. Surprisingly main metamorphosis hormones, ecdysteroids and juvenile hormones, are also involved in the anti-oxidative reactions. Though our knowledge of the underlying mechanisms is just fragmentary at this point, it is evident that insect hormones play a significant role in the defense against OS by controlling processes as is known from vertebrates.
