Effects of primidone, phenobarbital and phenylethylmalonamide in the stimulated frog neuromuscular junction.


The effects of primidone (1.0 mM), phenobarbital (0.2 mM) and phenylethylmalonamide (PEMA) (1.0 mM) on nerve-stimulated transmitter release (quantal content) were determined for extracellular Ca++ concentrations ([Ca++]0) from 0.4 to 0.8 mM at 1.0 Hz nerve stimulation frequency. At these [Ca++]0, the relationship between the log of quantal content vs. the… (More)
