For many years noradrenaline was considered to be the exclusive transmitter released from sympathetic nerves. However, during recent years both ATP and NPY have been suggested to be co-transmitters to noradrenaline in these nerves. The present study aimed to investigate the functional relationship between these suggested transmitters during nerve stimulation with different frequencies and in different extracellular calcium concentrations. Also the importance of the pattern of nerve stimulation… CONTINUE READING
