1. The distribution and release of substance P (SP) in embryonic chicken lumbar sympathetic ganglia was examined with the use of immunohistochemistry and radioimmunoassay, respectively. SP immunoreactivity was detected in nerve fibers surrounding individual sympathetic neurons and was released by ganglionic depolarization. 2. Effects of SP on nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (AChR) function was assayed in embryonic sympathetic neurons in vitro by whole-cell patch clamp. SP (0.1-20 microM… CONTINUE READING
