  • The effects of Mn2+, Co2+, and of Ni2+ on quantal acetylcholine (ACh) release have been studied with conventional microelectrode techniques. Increasing the [Co2+]0 or [Ni2+]0 (in the absence of extracellular Ca2+) caused an increase in miniature endplate potential (MEPP) frequency. [Mn2+]0 caused some increase in frequency at low levels, but then there was no rise as the concentration was increased further. In preparations depolarized with 20 mM K+, the MEPP frequency was a monotonically… CONTINUE READING
