Effects of hypoxia on stimulus-release coupling mechanisms in cultured bovine adrenal chromaffin cells

To clarify the effects of hypoxia on stimulus-release coupling, we have examined the effects of hypoxia on nicotine-induced catecholamine (noradrenaline and adrenaline) release from, and 22Na+ influx, 45Ca2+ influx and cytosolic free Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) in, cultured bovine adrenal chromaffin cells. Experiments were carried out in media pre… CONTINUE READING
