1. We have used pharmacologic, immunologic, and biochemical techniques to examine the role of neurochemicals in modulating the myogenic heart of the snail, Lymnaea. 2. 5-HT [high-pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC) and immunocytochemistry], dopamine (HPLC), FMRFamide-related peptides (radioimmunoassay and immunocytochemistry) and substance P-related peptides (immunocytochemistry) were shown to be localized within heart tissue. 3. The pharmacologic actions of these substances on the auricle… CONTINUE READING
