Long-term potentiation (l.t.p.) of transmitter release induced by adrenaline in bull-frog sympathetic ganglia was studied using intracellular recording techniques. The quantal content of the fast excitatory post-synaptic potentials (fast e.p.s.p.s: evoked by the nicotinic action of acetylcholine) was potentiated for more than several hours after treatment with adrenaline (1-100 microM). A similar l.t.p. of quantal content was produced consistently by isoprenaline (10 microM) and only in a… CONTINUE READING
