Sympathetic preganglionic neurones located in the intermediolateral cell column (IML) are subject to inputs descending from higher brain regions, as well as strong influences from local interneurones. Since interneurones in the IML have been rarely studied directly we examined their electrophysiological and anatomical properties. Whole cell patch clamp(More)
Ca(2+) release from the Golgi apparatus regulates key functions of the organelle, including vesicle trafficking. We found that the Golgi apparatus was the source of prolonged Ca(2+) release events that originated near the nuclei of primary cardiomyocytes. Golgi Ca(2+) release was unaffected by depletion of sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca(2+), and disruption of(More)
