The accumulation of amino acids by a sedimentable fraction from olfactory rosettes of rainbow trout (Salmo gairdneri) was examined to determine the correspondence with established criteria for receptors. Physical parameters such as saturability, reversibility, affinity and quantity of sites were reasonably consistent with receptor criteria. The kinetics of association were slow and not in accord with values expected of sensory receptors. Accumulation correlated with electrophysiological… CONTINUE READING
