The three-dimensional (3D) diffusion model of Fogelson, A. L., and R. S. Zucker (1985. Biophys. J. 48: 1003-1017) has been employed as the basis of a refined version of the "Ca theory" for neurotransmitter release. As such, it has been studied here as to its ability to predict the time course of release under various conditions. In particular, conditions were chosen in which the temporal variations in intracellular Ca2+ concentration, the sole factor controlling the release according to the Ca… CONTINUE READING
