Summary1.Adult femaleCulex pipiens andCuliseta inornata have purinergic receptors that respond to extracellular ADP and related compounds. Stimulation of these receptors caused ingestion of artificial diets. Addition of bicarbonate to the saline solvent enhanced the phagostimulatory effect. Saline-bicarbonate was as effective a solvent as blood plasma forCx. pipiens, and was used in the dose-effect determinations. Ranking of the potencies was: ADP>AMP-PNP>ATP= AMP>AMP-PCP≫2′dAMP>2′dADP>2′dATP… CONTINUE READING
