1. Exposure of neurohaemal areas to solutions of elevated K concentration (above 40 HIM) causes a maximal release of diuretic hormone in Rhodmus prolixus and Glossina austeni. 2. An involvement of Ca in hormone release is indicated by the reduction caused by low concentrations of this cation (below 2 mM) or by the presence of Mn. 3. During prolonged treatment with K-rich solutions the rate of hormone release is initially high, but then declines. This response parallels that for Ca entry into… CONTINUE READING
