Dissociation and culture of mechanosensory neurons for patch clamp analysis.

Abstract

Single mechanosensory neurons were isolated from chordotonal organs of adult cockroach antennae. Transmission and scanning electron microscopy showed that the soma and part of the mechanosensory ending survived the dissociation. In culture, outgrowth occurred from the ending. Regions of cell membrane were accessible for patch clamp analysis and channels… (More)
