Mechanism of calcium efflux from isolated bovine adrenal chromaffin cells.

Chromaffin cells isolated from bovine adrenals and maintained in culture were loaded with 45Ca, and the mechanism of 45Ca efflux from these cells was investigated. During exposure to a Ca-deficient, Mg (1 mM)-containing medium, replacement of NaCl with sucrose, choline Cl, or Tris Cl reduced the rate of 45Ca efflux by approx. 30-40%, showing the presence of… CONTINUE READING
