1. The neurohypophysis comprises the nerve terminals of hypothalamic neurosecretory cells, which contain arginine vasopressin (AVP) and oxytocin. The secretory terminals of rat neurohypophyses were acutely dissociated. The macroscopic calcium currents (ICa) of these isolated peptidergic terminals were studied using 'whole-cell' patch-clamp recording techniques. 2. There are two types ('Nt' (where the subscript 't' denotes terminal) and 'L') of high-threshold voltage-activated ICa in the… CONTINUE READING
