The stimulatory effect of vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) on catecholamine (CA) secretion from isolated guinea pig adrenal chromaffin cell was studied. VIP (1-10 microM) induced dose-dependent CA secretion, which was slow and continued for at least 30 min. This VIP-induced CA secretion was dependent on the presence of Ca2+ in the medium, but no(More)
The effects of vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) on catecholamine (CA) secretion by isolated guinea pig adrenal medullary cells were studied. VIP (1 microM) alone induced only a slight secretion of CA, but it stimulated ACh-induced CA secretion. At concentrations of 0.01-1 microM, it stimulated muscarine-induced CA secretion, but not nicotine-induced(More)
In isolated guinea pig adrenal chromaffin cells, not only nicotine, but also muscarine stimulated catecholamine (CA) secretion, the stimulation by muscarine being the greater. The secretions of CA by muscarine and nicotine were both dependent on the presence of Ca2+ in the medium, but only the latter was associated with a rapid increase in 45Ca2+ uptake.(More)
