Constitutive secretion of exogenous neurotransmitter by nonneuronal cells: implications for neuronal secretion.

Abstract

Fibroblasts in cell culture were loaded with exogenous neurotransmitter acetylcholine (ACh). ACh secretion from loaded cells was detected by whole-cell patch clamp recordings from Xenopus myocytes manipulated into contact with ACh-loaded cells. Two different approaches were used for ACh loading. In the first approach, fibroblasts were incubated in the… (More)
