1. The stimulatory effectiveness of amino acids and analogs on the external gustatory receptors of the carp (Cyprinus carpio L.) was investigated with extracellular electrophysiological techniques. 2. Amino acids are highly effective stimuli for the carp gustatory system. Threshold for L-proline, the most effective stimulus tested, averaged 10−8.5±0.9 (SD) mol/l. Thresholds for the other stimulatory chemicals ranged between 10−4–10−8 mol/l (Table 1). Averaged gustatory neural activity for L… CONTINUE READING
