The effects of the nicotinic agonist (+)-anatoxin-a have been examined in four different preparations, representing at least two classes of neuronal nicotinic receptors. (+)-Anatoxin-a was most potent (EC50 = 48 nM) in stimulating 86Rb+ influx into M10 cells, which express the nicotinic receptor subtype comprising alpha 4 and beta 2 subunits. A presynaptic(More)
The modulation of [3H]ACh release by nicotinic compounds was studied in superfused rat hippocampal synaptosomes loaded with [3H]choline, (-)-Nicotine (0.1-10 microM) evoked a dose-dependent increase in [3H]ACh release; higher concentrations were less effective. Nicotine-evoked release was Ca(2+)-dependent, and blocked by the nicotinic antagonists(More)
