The effects of glutamate on the noradrenergic innervation of the rat vas deferens have been investigated. Administration of a single dose of kainate (50 micrograms) to the peripheral noradrenergic ganglia innervating the vas deferens induced a time-dependent decrease of norepinephrine in the organ; after 10 days the norepinephrine concentration had fallen to 35% of control values. This effect was accompanied by a 70% decrease in the potassium-induced release of recently incorporated 3H… CONTINUE READING
