...Brian McNeill; Colin J. Montpetit; Steve F. Perry SUMMARY The goal of the present study was to assess the catecholamine secretory capabilities of rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss chromaffin cells experiencing desensitization of the nicotinic receptor. It was hypothesized that the potential...

... and nicotinic receptors is proposed, since atropine and tubocurarine (at 10 –3 mol l –1 ) inhibited 99 % and 71 %, respectively, of the light emitted. Study of the subtypes of cholinergic receptors involved in photogenesis revealed that several subtypes of muscarinic receptors might be involved. It was also...

Second, pre-treatment with the nicotinic receptor antagonist hexamethonium inhibited the electrically evoked secretion of adrenaline and noradrenaline. Third, perfusion...

... depolarization was produced by the activation of a cationic conductance mediated by receptors with a pharmacological profile similar to that of the α9 nicotinic receptors and was not a byproduct of the early phases of the cholinergic response. The response seemed to be initiated in the extensive neuropilar...

The receptors responsible for the excitation fit into the classification of neuronal nicotinic receptors, whereas the receptors mediating the inhibition are closer in type to the muscular nicotinic receptor...
