Parturition in fingernail clams (Sphaerium spp.) can be induced by external application of serotonin and serotonergic ligands. Selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRIs) increase neurotransmission at serotonergic synapses by blocking re-uptake transporters. We tested the efficacy of SSRIs (fluvoxamine, fluoxetine, paroxetine) at inducing parturition(More)
We characterized the serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine; 5-HT) receptor mediating cilia-driven rotational movement in embryos of the freshwater gastropod Physa elliptica. In addition, putative serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), previously shown to induce other 5-HT-mediated processes in molluscs, were tested for their ability to induce rotation. As in(More)
