Cyclic Adenosine Monophosphate Mediation of Peptide Neurohormone Effects on the Lobster Cardiac Ganglion

Abstract

Two cardioexcitors which can be extracted or released from crustacean neurohaemal structures, the pericardial organs, alter the endogenous bursting activity of isolated lobster cardiac ganglia in different ways. A small peptide increases the burst frequency of the ganglion, the duration of each burst, and the number of spikes per burst, while 5… (More)
