Proliferation of saccular hair cells of the amphibian, Xenopus laevis, was examined at various stages of development. Numbers of total hair cells and of hair cell bundle types were determined in larval (stages 47, 52 and 56), recently metamorphosed juvenile (1 g), and adult (60 g) animals with scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Hair cells were identified(More)
Reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) was used to amplify sequences for delayed rectifier potassium (drk) channel transcripts in Xenopus laevis inner ear and brain. We used degenerate primers that spanned a region between the N-terminal cytoplasmic portion and a region located between the S2 and S3 transmembrane domains of the potassium(More)
1. The venoms of two Mojave rattlesnakes and those of their offsprings were analyzed for Mojave toxin and hemorrhagic toxin. 2. The venom of one female, collected in Pima County, Arizona, and the venoms of her six offspring contained hemorrhagic toxin but not Mojave toxin (venom B). 3. The venom of the second female, captured in El Paso County, Texas,(More)
1. Two hemorrhagic toxins of mol. wt 27,000 (B1) and 27,500 (B2) and pI 9.8 and 5.2 respectively were isolated from Crotalus basiliscus venom. 2. The two proteinases did not cross-react antigenically. 3. Both toxins caused hemorrhage in mice and each was capable of hydrolyzing hide power azure, casein, collagen and fibrin. 4. B1 hydrolyzed the A alpha, B(More)
