Calcium-binding proteins in chemoreceptors of Xenopus laevis.

Kerschbaum HH , Hermann A .


Abstract
Calcium-binding proteins were investigated immunohistochemically in chemo-receptors of the olfactory epithelium and taste buds of the clawed frog, Xenopus laevis. Calmodulin-, S-100- and calbindin-immunoreactive material were found in sensory cells of the olfactory epithelium; however, parvalbumin-like material was absent in these cells. Taste buds of the palate showed calmodulin-, S-100- and parvalbumin-immunoreactive material in sensory cells, while calbindin-immunoreactive material in supporting cells. Merkel cells, surrounding the base of the taste buds in a ring-like manner, exhibited calmodulin- and S-100-immunoreactive material.
