Calcium-independent noradrenaline release was studied in the isolated perfused rat heart under conditions of normoxia, cyanide intoxication, and ischemia. The release of endogenous noradrenaline and dihydroxyphenylglycol were determined by high-performance liquid chromatography. The release of dihydroxyphenylglycol, the main neuronal noradrenaline(More)
After loading of the incubated rat vas deferens with 0.2 mumol/l 3H-noradrenaline (followed by 100 min of wash-out with amine-free solution), the efflux of endogenous and exogenous compounds was determined by HPLC with electrochemical detection and by column chromatography with scintillation counting. Two different types of heterogeneity of labelling were(More)
Nicotine-induced noradrenaline was investigated in perfused guinea pig hearts subjected to metabolic blockade that was caused either by anoxia or by cyanide intoxication. Noradrenaline, neuropeptide Y, and dihydroxyphenylethyleneglycol (DOPEG) were determined in the coronary venous overflow Neuropeptide Y is a sympathetic cotransmitter of noradrenaline, and(More)
The rat vas deferens was incubated with 0.2 mumol/l 3H-noradrenaline for 60 min, washed out with amine-free solution for 100 min and then prepared for autoradiography (same tissues as presented by Azevedo et al. (1990) Naunyn-Schmiedeberg's Arch Pharmacol 342:245-248). The autoradiographic images were then digitized, and grain density was determined as a(More)
In isolated vasa deferentia and atria of the rat, 90% of the spontaneous efflux of [(3)H]noradrenaline is subject to neuronal re-uptake, although the density of the adrenergic innervation is about seven times higher in the former than in the latter tissue. This surprising lack of any influence of the density of innervation on the efficiency of re-uptake is(More)
In order to simulate the outward transport of 3H-noradrenaline induced by veratridine from adrenergic varicosities, a mathematical two-compartment model was developed in which the two compartments (representing axoplasm and storage vesicles) are arranged in series. Simulated results were compared with experimental results obtained with 100 mumol/l(More)
