The identification of an octopaminergic neurone and the modulation of a myogenic rhythm in the locust
Journal of Experimental Biology
An octopaminergic neurone in an insect is demonstrated. This cell (DUMETi) is the dorsal unpaired median neurone which projects to the extensor tibiae muscle of the locust metathoracic leg. Its soma was physiologically identified, isolated and shown to contain about 0.1 pmol of octopamine. Octopamine is about four times more concentrated in the axon than in the soma. The concentration in the soma is at least 800 times more than that in the soma of an identified motoneurone (which controls thepmid:25941 fatcat:4ojnzavkdfai5cls6t2z3m7ppi
