Activation of the Feeding Reflex in Hydra littoralis


A simple and accurate quantitative assay of the glutathioneactivated feeding reflex in Hydra is described. The results show: (a) There are a limited number of receptor-effector systems, probably localized in the area immediately around the mouth and on the tentacles. (b) Concentrations of glutathione greater than 5 X 10 -e M activate all these systems; 10… (More)
