CONTROL OF THE REDOX STATE OF THE PYRIDINE NUCLEOTIDES IN THE RAT CEREBRAL CORTEX. EFFECT OF ELECTROSHOCK‐INDUCED SEIZURES

—The concentrations of most of the intermediates of glycolysis and of the tricarboxylic acid cycle were determined in the cerebral cortex of rats, frozen 10 s after the induction of a generalized

Anaerobic energy metabolism of goldfish,Carassius auratus (L.)

The data obtained from anoxic goldfish are in contrast to available data on other animals and support earlier reports which indicate that this animal has a special anaerobic metabolism.

Effect of hypoxia on nicotinamide coenzyme content in tissues of newborn rats

It is suggested that hypoxia has a substantial effect on the absolute and relative concentration of nicotinamide coenzymes in the tissues of newborn rats, resulting in changes in the level and direction of oxidoreductive processes under hypoxic conditions.

Modulation of ecdysis in the moth Manduca sexta: the roles of the suboesophageal and thoracic ganglia.

CO(2) therefore appears to be a novel and non-invasive tool for studies of ecdysis behavior in insects and can uncouple the basic larval motor program from modulatory influences provided by the adult pterothoracic ganglion.

Metabolism and Neurotransmission

An understanding of the pathophysiological basis of altered neuronal function requires knowledge of the relationship of metabolism to neurotransmission, which is associated with changes in neurotransmitter metabolism.

THE BLOCKING EFFECT OF y‐AMINOBUTYRIC ACID (GABA) AND THE ACTION OF RELATED COMPOUNDS ON SINGLE NERVE CELLS *

GA action has been found to be similar in many important aspects to that of the normally occurring inhibitory neural transmitter and it is thought that G A B A blocks by selectively increasing the movement of specific ions across the nerve cell membrane.

It is proposed that the carbamino-GABA compound does not possess the synaptic inhibitory power of uncombined GABA, and that the interactions of GABA with the higher than normal moisture, atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration, and warmth in the vicinity of a potential host underlie the insect's host-seeking behavior.

PHARMACOLOGICAL PROPERTIES OF EXCITATORY NEUROMUSCULAR SYNAPSES IN THE LOCUST

It appears that locust haemolymph contains little ‘free’ L-glutamate, and four acidic amino aids have been identified in the perfusate from isolated retractor unguis preparations namely, glycine, alanine, aspartate and L- glutamate.

Pharmacological Studies on the Auditory Synapses in a Grasshopper

The conclusion that the T large fibre has excitatory synapse with the tympanic nerves, and inhibitory synapses with the inhibitory interneurons activated by the tyMPanic neurons, has been confirmed pharmacologically.
