The role of cAMP in the control of secretion from bovine adrenal chromaffin cells was examined using the adenylate cyclase activator, forskolin. Treatment of chromaffin cells with forskolin resulted in a rise in cAMP levels. Forskolin inhibited catecholamine release elicited by carbamylcholine or nicotine but had no effect on secretion evoked by 55 mM K+.(More)
The membrane bound 223 amino acid Sigma-1 Receptor (S1R) serves as a molecular chaperone and functional regulator of many signaling proteins. Spinal cord motor neuron activation occurs, in part, via large ventral horn cholinergic synapses called C-boutons/C-terminals. Chronic excitation of motor neurons and alterations in C-terminals has been associated(More)
Two forms of vitamin C are recognized, ascorbic acid and dehydro-ascorbic acid. Although most of the vitamin exists as ascorbic acid, both forms appear to be utilized similarly by the human (Sabry et al., 1958). Many species of animals are able to synthesize ascorbic acid and do not require it in the diet. When deprived of a dietary source of vitamin C for(More)
