This paper concerns the role of nitric oxide (NO) in controlling metamorphosis in the marine gastropod Crepidula fornicata. Metamorphosis was stimulated by the nitric oxide synthase (NOS) inhibitors AGH (aminoguanidine hemisulfate) and SMIS (S-methylisothiourea sulfate) at concentrations of about 100-1000 micromol l(-1) and 50-200 micromol l(-1), respectively. Metamorphosis was not, however, induced by the NOS inhibitor l-NAME (l-N(G)-nitroarginine methyl ester) at even the highest… CONTINUE READING
