Abstract. Previous work has suggested that the activation energy of mechanotransduction is higher than expected from the simple electrochemistry of ion channels, but the temperature sensitivity of mechanically activated receptor current has not been measured directly before. We used the single-electrode voltage-clamp technique to measure receptor currents in sensory neurons of the VS-3 slit-sense organ in the spider, Cupiennius salei. Receptor currents were generated by deforming the cuticular… CONTINUE READING
