Involvement of P2 purinoceptors and the nitric oxide pathway in [3H]purine outflow evoked by short-term hypoxia and hypoglycemia in rat hippocampal slices
The objective of this study was to study how the outflow of [3H]purines is altered during a brief period of ischemic-like conditions in superfused hippocampal slices and to show whether it isExpand

A 5-HT7 Heteroreceptor-Mediated Inhibition of [3H]Serotonin Release in Raphe Nuclei Slices of the Rat: Evidence for a Serotonergic–Glutamatergic Interaction
Midbrain slices containing the dorsal and medial raphe nuclei were prepared from rat brain, loaded with [3H]serotonin ([3H]5-HT), superfused, and the electrically induced efflux of radioactivity wasExpand

Studies on the release and extracellular metabolism of endogenous ATP in rat superior cervical ganglion: support for neurotransmitter role of ATP
The release of endogenous ATP, measured by the luciferin-luciferase assay, and the release of [3H]acetylcholine from the isolated superior cervical ganglion of the rat loaded with [3H]choline wereExpand

ATP and [3H]noradrenaline release and the presence of ecto-Ca(2+)-ATPases in the capsule-glomerulosa fraction of the rat adrenal gland.
Both [3H]noradrenaline ([3H]NA) and ATP were released in response to supramaximal electric field stimulation in superfused rat adrenal capsule-glomerulosa preparations. The voltage-dependentExpand
