Afferent regulation of neurotransmitter metabolism in perikarya and terminals of developing sympathetic neurons.


Steady-state levels and turnover of the neurotransmitter, norepinephrine (NE), were measured in sympathetic perikarya and in two sympathetic target organs in the rat at various times during postnatal development. NE content in sympathetic perikarya in the superior cervical ganglion (SCG) increases 15-fold from birth to reach adult levels by 60 days. This… (More)
