The effects of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and related compounds on the sensitivity of the nicotinic acetylcholine (ACh)-receptor of bullfrog sympathetic ganglion cells were analysed electro-physiologically. ATP in concentrations between 0.05 and 2 mM increased the amplitudes of the potentials and currents induced by ACh, and carbachol-induced currents. Compared with ATP, ADP was less potent in producing augmentation of the carbachol-induced current by one order of magnitude. AMP, cyclic AMP… CONTINUE READING
