The purpose of this study was to characterize voltage-gated Ca2+ channels on the mouse motor nerve terminals. Mouse diaphragm and triangularis sterni preparations were used for this study in order to assess the functional Ca2+ channels in the transmitter release. The results showed that omega-conotoxin MVIIC (CTx-MVIIC, 0.5-1 microM) but not omega-conotoxin GVIA (1 mM) markedly inhibits not only the nerve-evoked muscle contractions accompanied by a decrease in the amplitude of end plate… CONTINUE READING
