The cervical sympathetic nerve stimulated release of norepinephrine (NE) from the rabbit superior cervical ganglion (SCG) was characterized.

Nerve stimulated NE release was potentiated by 1 micromolar desmethylimipramine and 25(More)
Norepinephrine-3H (NE-3H) and its metabolic normetanephrine-3H were released from the superfused rabbit SCG incubated in tyrosine-3H in response to preganglionic stimulation. Neither dopamine-3H nor its metabolite, 3-methoxy-tyrosine could be detected in the superfusate from "control" or "nerve stimulated" tissues. Nerve stimulated NE-3H release a) was(More)
