Changes in hormone activity of single neurosecretory cell bodies during a physiological secretion cycle
Single neurosecretory cell bodies were dissected from the ventral ganglionic mass of Rhodnius prolixus, lysed in distilled water, and bioassayed for diuretic hormone (DH) activity on isolatedExpand

Feedback from motor neurones to pacemaker neurones in lobster cardiac ganglion contributes to regulation of burst frequency
The crustacean cardiac ganglion has traditionally been viewed as a two-layered system in which pacemaking is a function of the four small cells which trigger the five follower motor neurones viaExpand

Excitatory Effects of Dopamine on the Cardiac Ganglia of the Crabs Portunus Sanguinolentus and Podophthalmus Vigil
1. 1. Dopamine, a cardioexcitor in decapod crustaceans, increased the frequency and/or duration of bursts of action potentials in the semi-isolated cardiac ganglia of two species of crabs. The numberExpand

Release of a neurosecretory hormone as peptide by electrical stimulation of crab pericardial organs.
1. Saline which had bathed an isolated crab pericardial organ was chromatographed on a column of Sephadex G-25. The fractions were divided and assayed for cardioexcitor activity and for ninhydrinExpand

The role of divalent cations in electrically elicited release of a neurohormone from crab pericardial organs.
Abstract Isolated pericardial organs of Libinia emarginata were stimulated electrically, and propagated nerve activity was recorded from the neurohemal area. Released cardioexcitor hormone wasExpand

Telost caudal neurosecretory system: effects of osmotic stress on urophysial proteins and active factors.
Abstract 1. 1. Disc-gel electrophoresis of urophyses from the euryhaline marine teleost Gillichthys mirabilis reveals the presence of two prominent proteins not found in other tissues of the sameExpand
