Co-transmitter function of ATP in central catecholaminergic neurons of the rat.

Abstract

Intracellular recordings were made in a mid-pontine slice preparation of the rat brain containing the nucleus locus coeruleus. Focal electrical stimulation evoked biphasic synaptic potentials consisting of early depolarizing (d.p.s.p.) and late hyperpolarizing (i.p.s.p.) components. The alpha(2)-adrenoceptor antagonist idazoxan inhibited the i.p.s.p… (More)
