Decreased transmitter release conferred by a mutation in the slowpoke-encoded calcium-dependent potassium channel gene at the Drosophila neuromuscular junction
Using immunocytochemical and electrophysiological methods, the effects of mutations in the structural gene for a calcium activated potassium channel, slowpoke (slo), in Drosophila melanogaster were studied. Anti-horseradish ...
Some aspects of sulfur metabolism in the lugworm, Arenicola cristata Stimpson
Among the published reports on invertebrate biochemistry is a study by Robin (1954) using Arenicola marina L. Robin hypothesized that taurocyamine, a sulfur-containing guanidine derivative, was formed from taurine. Although ...
A cytological study of the hypodermis of the parasitic nematode, Capillaria hepatica
Both electron microscopy and light microscope histochemistry have been used to describe the cytology of the hypodermis of the parasitic nematode, Capillaria hepatica. The hypodermis of the mid portion of the body of this ...
The helminth parasites of the Bob-white quail [and] Studies on the life history of Mesocestoides latus Mueller

PHASE SHIFTING THE CIRCADIAN RHYTHM FROM THE APLYSIA EYE: INVOLVEMENT OF 5-HT AND CYCLIC AMP
The circadian rhythm (CR) of compound optic nerve potentials (CAPs) from the isolated eye of Aplysia californica can be phase shifted by 5-HT (serotonin). Data are presented in this thesis which suggest that 5-HT acts as ...
Influence of male sex hormone level in the host on the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta
In addition to dramatic effects on the primary and secondary sexual characteristics, there are several responses to castration and testosterone administration in the male mammal which indicate this hormone to be at least ...
Some aspects of amino acid metabolism in Mytilus edulis L., 1758, and Rangia cuneata Gray, 1831
Abstract Not Available.
Conduction in a bullfrog atrial trabeculum: Active and passive properties, and modifications produced by acetylcholine
A model of $\beta$-adrenergic and muscarinic cholinergic stimulation of the bullfrog atrial myocyte has been developed that mimics the dose-dependent effects of isoprenaline (ISO) on the action potential duration (APD); ...
Studies on the metabolism of Hymenolepis diminuta with special reference to desoxyribonucleic acid, vitamin B12 and fat
The studies reported herein are part of an overall program devoted to the task of providing sufficient factual information for a more complete understanding of the physiology of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta, and ...
