An in situ saline-perfused systemic heart/posterior cardinal vein preparation of the Atlantic hagfish (Myxine glutinosa) was used to assess (1) the ability of the chromaffin tissue to release catecholamines in response to adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH; 7.5 i.u. kg-1), serotonin (250 nmol kg-1), carbachol (100 µmol kg-1), [Asn1-Val5]angiotensin II (Ang II; 100 nmol kg-1), histamine (0.3­300 µmol l-1) and a high-[K+] saline (60 mmol l-1), (2) whether serotonin is co-released with the… CONTINUE READING
