The effect of acetylcholine (ACh), carbachol and nicotinic blocking agents on the release of newly synthesized [3H]dopamine ([3H]DA) was studied in vitro on rat striatal slices and in vivo on the cat caudate nucleus. In the latter case, the animals were anaesthetized with halothane; in some experimetns an 'encéphale isolé' preparation was used to eliminate(More)
Rat striatal slices (two) were superfused continuously with L-3,5-3H tyrosine and 3H-dopamine (3H-DA) release was estimated in serial fractions of superfusates. The spontaneous release of 3H-DA was reduced by about 50% when slices were superfused with a calcium-free medium containing ethylene glycol bis (beta-aminoethyl ether)- N,N'-tetraacetic acid (EGTA)(More)
Striatal slices were continuously superfused with L-3,5-(3)H-tyrosine (50 muCi/ml) and 4H-H2O [index of 3H-dopamine (3H-DA) synthesis] and 3H-DA estimated in 0.5 ml (2.5 min) superfusate fractions. Depolarization with 50 mM K+ for 7.5 min induced a marked increase in 3H-DA release and a biphasic effect on synthesis (slight increase in the first fraction(More)
