Published: 15 May 2007
...Ryan P. Ferrer; Richard K. Zimmer SUMMARY Animal perception of chemosensory cues is a function of ecological context. Larvae of the California newt ( Taricha torosa ), for example, exhibit predator-avoidance behavior in response to a chemical from cannibalistic adults. The poison tetrodotoxin (TTX...

... case and inhibits (larval) cannibal-avoidance in the other. When exposed to an arginine plume in freshwater streams, adult newts increase locomotion with respect to flow direction (rheotaxis) and odor input source. By contrast,arginine suppresses the stimulatory effects of tetrodotoxin (TTX) on larval...

...J. David Spafford; Nikita G. Grigoriev; Andrew N. Spencer ABSTRACT The Na + current of ‘swimming motor neurones’ in the hydromedusan Polyorchis penicillatus was tetrodotoxin-insensitive. The local anaesthetics lidocaine and procainamide caused partial, non use-dependent blockade of the Na + channel...

... sensitive to tetrodotoxin (TTX). These animals are, therefore, the lowest animals known to possess TTX-sensitive sodium currents and, as such, represent a major stage in sodium channel evolution. * Present address: Animal Health and Therapeutics Unit, Upjohn Laboratories, 7923-25-538, Kalamazoo, MI...

... retino-geniculo-cortical pathway can be eliminated by blocking the voltage-gated sodium channel with tetrodotoxin. Prenatal blockade prevents the laminar segregation of retinogeniculate axons. Postnatal blockade interrupts the formation of retinogeniculate synaptogenesis, slows the cytoarchitectonic...
