Abstract

1. 1. 5,6-dihydroxytryptamine injected into the foot muscle of Anodonta cygnea results in a 30% decrease in the serotonin level, but does not significantly influence the catecholamine content of the ganglia. 2. 2. Parallel with the moderate decrease of the serotonin content of the average length of the active periods of mussels significantly decreases, which is probably the consequence of the effect of 5,6-dihydroxytrptamine on the central and peripheral serotonergic mechanism. 3. 3. In the presence of 5,6-dihydroxytryptamine accumulation of serotonin, dopamine and noradrenaline is inhibited to a similar degree. In vitro pretreatment of isolated ganglia with 5,6-dihydroxytryptamine selectively inhibits the serotonin accumulation.
