Amiloride sensitivity of chorda tympani response to NaCl in Fischer 344 and Wistar rats.


Fischer 344 (F-344) rats fail to prefer NaCl solutions to water at any concentration and avoid NaCl solutions preferred by other strains, including Wistar rats. Behavioral and electrophysiological responses of the mammalian gustatory system to NaCl have been shown to depend on a sodium transport system that is specifically blocked by lingual application of… (More)
