Isolated neurosecretory nerve endings as a tool for studying the mechanism of stimulus-secretion coupling.


In the present paper we discuss the properties of a recently developed preparation of isolated neurosecretory nerve endings obtained from the rate neurohypophysis. These nerve terminals release two neurohormones, oxytocin and vasopressin, which are easily assayed by radioimmunoassay. Depolarization-induced secretion is dependent on the same parameters as… (More)
