...Lena Fishman; Rafael Herrmann; Dalia Gordon; Eliahu Zlotkin ABSTRACT Androctonus australis insect toxin (AaIT) is an insect-selective neurotoxic polypeptide from scorpion venom used to probe insect Na + channels and to design insecticidal recombinant baculoviruses. When injected into susceptible...

... by voltage-clamping the epithelium. A paradoxical activation of J Na is observed when J H is stimulated by an acid load (CO2), despite inhibition of Na + channel activity by H + in P cells. Patch-clamp studies reveal the presence of Na + channels in MR cells which may provide a route for Na + absorption...

... is essential for the generation of the cytoplasmic streaming all over the cell that is seen prior to food ingestion. In the food-gathering phase, activation of the depolarization-sensitive Na + channels around the tentacle produces a regenerative positive spike, which, in turn, causes a depolarizing...

... that the variable kinetic and pharmacological properties that characterize the various Na + potentials in these identified homologous neurones may be of functional significance and result from differences in the molecular structure of their Na + channels. * Present address: Department of Biology, Yale...
