Olfactory discrimination between glycine and deuterated glycine by fish

Specialia

Summary

Electrophysiological and behavioural experiments showed that whitefish (Coregonus clupeaformis) were able to discriminate between glycine and fully deuterated glycine by olfaction, while both chemicals stimulated the olfactory receptors to induce bulbar responses of similar magnitude.
