1. The high affinity uptake component exhibits enhanced affinity for 5-HT at 0°C. 2. The total amount of monoamine accumulated at 0°C is reduced. 3. 3-chlorimiprimine inhibited 5-HT uptake (ID50 value of 0.21 × 10-6 M) and benztropine inhibited DA uptake (ID50 value of 0.08 × 10-6 M) at lower concentrations at 0°C than reported for 24°C. 4. The pedal ganglion of M. edulis was found to exhibit seasonal variations in regard to the affinity of the uptake1 process and the amount of monoamine accumulation. 5. The uptake1 component appears to exhibit seasonal variations in regard to K+ sensitivity being more sensitive to K+ during warmer months.
