Investigation of the mechanism of chemoreception

Communication 4. The action of nicotine and of acids on the receptors of the intestine during changes in their excitability under the influence of different concentrations of monoiodoacetic acid
  • N. A. Anikina


The author investigated the effect of different concentrations of monoiodacetic acid (MIA) on the reception of nicotine and acids. It was shown that during the action of MIA in weak concentration (0.0005 M) the excitability in response to both stimuli augments at first and then becomes irreversibly disturbed; the action of nicotine changes but insignificantly. Higher MIA concentrations disturb the nicotine reception as well, however, this effect is reversible. A conclusion is drawn on the existence of separate reactive systems— for nicotine and for acids, with different metabolism.
