___________________Glutamate binds to glutamate receptor, conformational change, activating a G protein ___________________Binding causes conformational change activates transducin (G-protein). This causes activation of phospholipase C (PLC), which catalyzes conversion of PIP2 into IP3 (inositol triphosphate) which acts as a secondary messenger to activate internal ion channels. ___________________Caused by H+ ions in food ___________________ A precise pathway has not yet been characterized for this taste

Practice questions for Midterm #2 BIO3303 2017 Page 3of 45.(1 mark) Receptor A from the previous question has a small receptive field. What is the benefit of a small receptive field in terms of touch? 6.(4 marks) Using the basilar membrane of the cochlea explain how ‘place coding’ works. 7.(5 marks) Use a series of drawings of hair cells to show how they are responsible for generating action potentials capable of encoding magnitude and direction of mechanical stimulus. Explain briefly in words what the key characteristics are that permit this system to function. (Hint: ion channel characteristics, mechanical functioning). Include how the AP will change for each part of your drawing.
