K+ and Ca++ in the receptor lymph of arthropod cuticular mechanoreceptors

Abstract

Two types of cuticular strain detectors, the campaniform sensilla on the haltere of the blowfly,Calliphora vicina, and the slit sensilla on the tibia of the spider,Cupiennius salei, were investigated. In campaniform sensilla a transepithelial voltage (43.6±10.7 mV), which depends on an intact metabolism, occurs. In spider slit sensilla no transepithelial… (More)
