Sensory response to environmental stimuli modulated by form of vitamin B3 in worms

(Penn State) Too much of a form of vitamin B3 that is produced naturally in cells can cause behavioral changes in a laboratory worm, new studies show. The research provides clues to the mechanism that cuases the cells to die, and it links these cellular processes to the worm's behavior.
