The effects of calcium and strontium on the quantal content of nerve-evoked endplate currents and on the kinetic parameters of quantal release (minimal synaptic delay, value of main mode of synaptic delay histogram, and variability of synaptic delay) were studied at the mouse neuromuscular synapse. At low calcium ion concentrations (0.2-0.6 mmol/L), evoked(More)
Uniquantal endplate currents (EPCs) were recorded simultaneously at the proximal, central and distal parts of the frog neuromuscular synapse, and their minimal synaptic latencies, latency dispersions and sensitivity to noradrenaline, cAMP and protein kinase A inhibition were measured. The latency dispersion was highest in the proximal part (P90 = 1.25 ms);(More)
The effects of cholinergic drugs on the quantal contents of the nerve-evoked endplate currents (EPCs) and the parameters of the time course of quantal release (minimal synaptic latency, main modal value of latency histogram and variability of synaptic latencies) were studied at proximal, central and distal regions of the frog neuromuscular synapse.(More)
We investigated quantal release and ultrastructure in the neuromuscular junctions of synapsin II knockout (Syn II KO) mice. Synaptic responses were recorded focally from the diaphragm synapses during electrical stimulation of the phrenic nerve. We found that synapsin II affects transmitter release in a Ca(2+)-dependent manner. At reduced extracellular(More)
The conduction velocity of the nerve terminal, mean quantal content, and release latencies of uniquantal endplate currents (EPCs) were recorded in proximal, central, and distal parts of the terminal by extracellular pipettes located 5, 50, and 100 mm from the end of myelinated nerve trunk. The spike conduction velocity, minimal latency, modal value of the(More)
Uni-quantal endplate currents (EPC) were recorded at mouse diaphragm neuromuscular synapse by extracellular microelectrode during motor nerve stimulation. The probability of release expressed as quantal content m(o), and variability of synaptic latencies expressed as P90 were estimated in the presence of extracellular calcium ([Ca2+]o) varying between 0.2(More)
It is well known that antagonists of N-type voltage-gated calcium channels inhibit the evoked quantal release of acetylcholine in amphibian neuromuscular synapses. This, however, does not exclude the functional expression of other types of voltage-gated calcium channels in these nerve terminals. Using immunocytochemistry, we detected the expression of the(More)
The kinetics of the phasic synchronous and delayed asynchronous release of acetylcholine quanta was studied at the neuromuscular junctions of aging rats from infant to mature animals at various frequencies of rhythmic stimulation of the motor nerve. We found that in infants 6 (P6) and 10 (P10) days after birth a strongly asynchronous phase of quantal(More)
Uni-quantal endplate currents (EPCs) were recorded extracellularly at the frog neuromuscular synapse and their latency dispersions expressed as P(90) were estimated in the presence of acetylcholine. Stimulation-evoked EPCs with long release latencies increased in number when acetylcholine was applied. P90, which is designated as the interval between the(More)
83 The axon of a motoneuron forms terminal branch ing in phasic muscle fibers of cold blooded animals; the branching length is from 100 to 500 μm [1, 2]. The presence of the proximal–distal gradient of a number of characteristics of quantal secretion of a neurotrans mitter in different parts of the motor nerve ending in the neuromuscular junction of frogs(More)
