The topography of transmitter release sites at the motor-nerve terminal of the cutaneous-pectoris frog muscle has been determined using three extracellular electrodes. It is shown that release sites are united in groups arranged transversally to the nerve endings and reflecting the transmitter release in the active zones (AZ) of the nerve terminal. The quantitative analysis of revealed groups has permitted concluding that the maximal level of secretion is at the centre of AZ, decreasing to the… CONTINUE READING
