... preparations from Burmese pythons. We located the dominant pacemaker site at the base of the right leaflet of the sinoatrial valve (SAV), but latent pacemakers were also identified in a circular region around the SAV. Acetylcholine (10 −5 mol l −1 ) or noradrenaline (10 −6 mol l −1 ) induced shifts...

..., we expanded the toolbox for the identification of cholinergic neurons by generating a new line FRT-STOP-FRT-VAChT::HA that is a conditional tagged knock-in of the vesicular acetylcholine transporter ( VAChT ) gene in its endogenous locus. Importantly, in comparison to already available tools...

Larvae previously immersed in 10 μmol l −1 5-HT or ACh also displayed an increased ASR response. Our results support the notion that ASR is a behavioural response...

...Daniel Kueh; John A. Jellies SUMMARY The heart excitor (HE) motor neuron in the leech Hirudo releases acetylcholine (ACh) and a peptide, FMRFamide, to regulate the contractile activity of the heart tube and associated side vessels. Consistent with Dale's principle, it was assumed that both...

The transition from swimming to quiescence is promoted by acetylcholine signaling and initially during quiescence body wall muscles are in a state of contraction. After the first minute, quiescent worms...
