... their odorant response properties and possible transduction pathways, we recorded crypt ORN activity with calcium imaging and the patch clamp technique in its cell-attached mode in combination with odorant and agonist stimulation. Bile salts and putative fish pheromones did not elicit responses with either...

...William M. Roberts; Mark A. Rutherford SUMMARY Mechanosensory hair cells in the ear are exquisitely responsive to minute sensory inputs, nearly to the point of instability. Active mechanisms bias the transduction apparatus and subsequent electrical amplification away from saturation in either...

...Jessica H. Brann; Debra A. Fadool SUMMARY The mammalian signal transduction apparatus utilized by vomeronasal sensory neurons (VSNs) in the vomeronasal organ (VNO) has been richly explored, while that of reptiles, and in particular, the stinkpot or musk turtle Sternotherus odoratus , is less...

.... The gustatory responses to 5 % CO 2 were similarly reduced when the palate was adapted to solutions that contained no NW (DW, AFW, 10 mmol l −1 NaCl in DW). However, the reduction was independent of salt concentration, suggesting a different transduction mechanism for CO 2 . Tetrodotoxin (1 µ mol l −1 ) had...
