Transmitter release from nerve terminals is dependent on the entry of Ca(2+) through neuronal voltage-gated calcium channels. In sympathetic neurones both N- and L-type calcium channels are present. Potassium channel blockade increases Ca(2+) entry into sympathetic neurones. We examined the participation of N- and L-type calcium channels in the stimulation-evoked release of noradrenaline from vascular sympathetic neurones. Rings of rabbit carotid artery were preincubated with [3H]-noradrenaline… CONTINUE READING
