THE DISCOVERY of synaptic vesicles as the most significative component of nerve endings (DE ROBERTIS and BENNETT, 1954, 1955) led to the suggestion that they could be the site of storage and synthesis of transmitter substances. Since then this concept has become associated with the notion of a “quantized” release of acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction (DEL CASTILLO and KATZ, 1956). At the same time several indirect indications of the role of these vesicles in synaptic transmission were… Expand
