In the first two of this series of papers, a sensitive microculture procedure was used to show that rat sympathetic neurons grown singly on small islands of heart cells release norepinephrine (NE) and/or acetylcholine (ACh). We report here the release of a third transmitter in response to stimulation of these neurons. This agent was recognized by its effect… CONTINUE READING
