Second-messenger control of catecholamine release from PC12 cells. Role of muscarinic receptors and nerve-growth-factor-induced cell differentiation.

The role of various intracellular signals and of their possible interactions in the control of neurotransmitter release was investigated in PC12 cells. To this purpose, agents that affect primarily the cytosolic concentration of Ca2+, [Ca2+]i (ionomycin, high K+), agents that affect cyclic AMP concentrations (forskolin; the adenosine analogue… (More)
