Publisher Summary Research shows that the extraneuronal monoamine transporter exists in cells that stem from human central nervous system (CNS) glia. The physiological role of the extraneuronal monoamine transporter in the CNS may be characterized by a second line of defense. It inactivates that fraction of monoamines that escapes neuronal re-uptake and thus prevents uncontrolled spreading of the signal. Also, from various studies on sympathetically innervated peripheral organs, it is well… CONTINUE READING
