Barium distinguishes separate calcium targets for synthesis and secretion of peptides in neuroendocrine cells.

Abstract

The effect of barium and potassium on the secretion and biosynthesis of enkephalin in bovine chromaffin cells, and prolactin and beta-endorphin in rat anterior pituitary cells, was examined to determine whether calcium-dependent secretion and biosynthesis are mediated by the same or by different calcium targets within the neuroendocrine cell. In the… (More)
