1. FDNB increased by 60-90% the depolarization of the end-plate produced by applied carbachol in frog sciatic nerve-sartorius muscle preparations.2. In partially curarized preparations, FDNB (0.4 mM) increased the amplitude of the end-plate potential by a factor of 1.8.3. The quantal content of end-plate potentials was increased by FDNB (2 mM) as determined(More)
