The channel routing problem is a special case of the wire routing problem when interconnections have to be performed within a rectangular strip having no obstructions, between terminals located on opposite sides of the rectangle. We present here a new channel routing algorithm, based on reduction of the problem to the case of a (2&#215;<italic>n</italic>)(More)

The rate of translocation of newly synthesized acetylcholine (ACh) from the presynaptic cytosol of Torpedo electric organ nerve terminals into synaptic vesicles and the extent to which ACh release from these neurons is mediated by a vesicular mechanism were investigated. For this purpose the compound 2(4-phenylpiperidino)cyclohexanol (AH5183), which(More)
We have found that Torpedo electric organ readily synthesizes prostaglandin E2 from both exogenous and endogenous arachidonate and that activation of the presynaptic muscarinic acetylcholine receptor increases the rate of prostaglandin E2 synthesis by inducing the release of tissue arachidonate from its phospholipid pools. The incorporation of radiolabeled(More)
