Platelet-activating factor mediated potentiation of stimulation-evoked catecholamine release and the rise in intracellular free Ca2+ concentration in adrenal chromaffin cells.


The effects of platelet-activating factor (PAF) on catecholamine (CA) release and intracellular free Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) were studied in cultured bovine adrenal chromaffin cells. PAF (1 nM-1 micron) alone had no effect on [Ca2+]i and basal CA release, but potentiated the [Ca2+]i rise and CA release evoked by acetylcholine (ACh) and by elevated… (More)
