Intrasomal recording and horseradish peroxidase injection techniques were employed in vivo to determine the morphological characteristics of touch, temperature, and mechanical nociceptive neurons in the trigeminal ganglia of crotaline snakes. The touch neurons, with a peripheral axon conducting at the A-beta range, could be subdivided into tactile and(More)
Continuing our quantitative analysis of rho-dependent termination at the trp t ' terminator, we here present evidence that the position of rho-dependent terminators along the template is strongly regulated by the secondary structure of the nascent RNA transcript, and that the prerequisite for establishing an effective kinetic competition between elongation(More)
About one-half of the terminators of the Escherichia coli genome require transcription termination factor rho to function. Here we use the very "diffuse" trp t' terminator of E. coli to show that both template sequence and transcript secondary structure are involved in controlling the template positions and efficiencies of rho-dependent termination.(More)
1. Intrasomal recordings of potentials produced by current stimulation in vivo were made from 24 (A-beta) touch and 19 vibrotactile neurons in the trigeminal ganglion of 29 crotaline snakes, Trimeresurus flavoviridis. 2. Usually touch neurons responded with a single action potential at the beginning of a prolonged depolarizing pulse, whereas all(More)
