The effects of cholinergic drugs on transmission at the cercal nervegiant fiber synapse in the desheathed sixth abdominal ganglion of the American cockroach, Periplaneta americana (L.) were evaluated. When due consideration was given to slow diffusion rates of drugs into the ganglion, and to the enzymic hydrolysis of exogenously applied choline esters by endogenous cholinesterase, the synapse was found to respond in ways consistent with cholinergic transmission. Botulinus toxin… CONTINUE READING
