Effects of lithium rubidium and tetraethylammonium chloride on the locomotor activity rhythm of musca domestica



Effects of lithium rubidium and tetraethylammonium chloride on the locomotor activity rhythm of musca domestica



Journal of Interdisciplinary Cycle Research 18(2): 83-102



The effect of Li+, Rb+ and tetraethylammoniumchloride (TEA) on the locomotor activity rhythm of Musca domestica was studied. Li+ as well as TEA lengthen the free run period .sigma. This effect was more pronounced in animals with shorter period lengths. The effect of Rb+ depends on the previous period length. In flies which had a short period, Rb+ lengthened, and in those with a long period Rb+ shortened .sigma. Replacing the Li+ solution with water reverted the period lengthening partly. In the case of Rb+ and TEA the rhythm became obscured after raplacing the solutions with water. The involvement of K+ ions and transport ATPases in the expression of circadian rhythms is discussed.
