In the present study we combined FM 1-43 imaging and electrophysiological recording of miniature end-plate currents (MEPCs) to determine the role of extracellular calcium in synaptic vesicle exo- and endocytosis at the frog motor nerve terminals. We replaced extracellular Ca2+ ions with other bivalent cations (Sr2+, Ba2+, Cd2+, Mg2+) or used a calcium-free(More)
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is characterized by memory decline, but is often associated with non-cognitive symptoms, including muscular dysfunction. In the majority of cases these motor disturbances are seen when other neuro-degenerative disorders such as Parkinson's disease overlap dementia, however these can also be directly related to AD itself. Although(More)
Neurotransmitter release and exocytosis of synaptic vesicles in the motor nerve endings of the frog cutaneous-pectoris muscle were studied using electrophysiological and optical methods under the conditions of inhibition of the myosin light-chain kinase and non-muscle myosin by the specific inhibitors ML-7 (12 μM) and (–)-blebbistatin (100 μM). At(More)
Transmitter release and synaptic vesicle exo- and endocytosis during high-frequency stimulation (20 pulses/s) in the extracellular presence of different bivalent cations (Ca(2+), Sr2+ or Ba2+) were studied in frog cutaneous pectoris nerve-muscle preparations. It was shown in electrophysiological experiments that almost only synchronous transmitter release(More)
