Choline acetyltransferase (CAT) activity has been measured in the nematode Ascaris lumbricoides. Strips of hypodermal tissue which contained branches of single identified motoneurons (Stretton, A.O.W., R.M. Fishpool, E. Southgate, J.E. Donmoyer, J.P. Walrond, and I.S. Kass (1978) Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. 75: 3493-3497) as well as control strips containing no neural tissue were assayed. In strips of hypodermis which contained branches of excitatory motoneurons (classes DE1, DE2, and DE3… CONTINUE READING
