Acetylcholine synthesis in the Schwann cell and axon in the giant nerve fiber of the squid.


Acetyltransferase enzymatic activity was detected and measured in homogenates obtained from intact nerve fibers and their saparate cellular components, in the tropical squid Sepioteuthis sepioidea. The levels of acetylcholine synthesis were determined in pooled samples of whole stellar nerve, intact giant nerve fiber, extruded axoplasm, axoplasm-free giant… (More)
