Stimulatory effect of trans-cinnamaldehyde on noradrenaline secretion in guinea-pig ileum myenteric nerve terminals.

The effect of trans-cinnamaldehyde (CNMA) on the release of noradrenaline (NA) from nerve terminal was investigated using isolated ileal synaptosomes of guinea-pig. Release was determined as the amount of NA, quantified by h.p.l.c.-electrochemical detection, from samples incubated with CNMA minus that in parallel blanks treated with same volume of vehicle… (More)
