Nematode chemotaxis and chemoreceptors

, : Nematode chemotaxis and chemoreceptors. Taxis and behavior Elementary sensory systems in biology Receptors and recognition, Series B, Volume 5 Eds: Cuatrecasas, P; Greaves, MF: 141-168

The chemotactic responses of Caenorhabditis elegans are reviewed and new observations are presented. Methods for measuring chemosensory responses are described and compounds acting as attractants or repellants are listed. The chemotactic responses of 12 mutants are tabulated and discussed. Experiments for determining the number of receptor sites and the anatomy of sensory neurones in mutant and wild types are described.

Background: It is not known whether stress affects the prevalence of endometriosis in women. Baboons with spontaneous endometriosis may be interesting models to study the human disease. For baboons, living in captivity is a period of chronic stres...
