Publisher Summary This chapter discusses a study to investigate the role of calcium ions in the formation and release of small molecular weight substances from optic nerve terminals. Retinal proteins were labeled by the intraocular injections of radioactive amino acids. The tissue slices of the superior colliculus (SC) were prepared after 16–18 h, that is, when the rapid phases of the axonal transport had reached the terminals in the region. The effect of depolarizing pulses of KCl and of Ca… CONTINUE READING
