The pharmacological actions of the compound N-(2-chloroethyl)-N-ethyl-2-bromobenzylamine hydrochloride (DSP-4) are compatible with a specific neurotoxic effect on both peripheral and central noradrenergic neurons. The systemic injection of DSP-4 to adult rats transiently alters sympathetic neurons in the periphery but in the central nervous system the(More)
There is considerable evidence that the sympathetic nervous system influences the immune response via activation and modulation of beta(2)-adrenergic receptors (beta(2)R). Furthermore, it has been suggested that stress has effects on the sympathetic nervous system. In the present study, we analyzed the influence of catecholamines on the reactivity of(More)
Fine structural analyses of nerve terminals in both the central and in the peripheral nervous systems have demonstrated the presence of synaptic vesicles, which were postulated to be the storage sites of neurotransmitters . Several different types of synaptic vesicles have been described (see ref . 6) . Electron-lucent vesices, 400-500 A in diameter,(More)
The nerves of rat pineal gland are known to contain norepinephrine and 5-hydroxytryptamine. With the glutaraldehyde-dichromate reaction for the cytochemical localization of unsubstituted catechol- and indoleamines, dense reactive granules could be demonstrated in such endings. A similar reaction was observed in the adrenergic nerves supplying the vas(More)
