Example text

Such transport occurs along the length of the axon in association with microtubules and is driven by unidirectional motors in a process that depends on the hydrolysis of ATP(Fig. 8). Axoplasmic transport occurs in both anterograde (toward the terminal) and retrograde (toward the cell body) directions. Neurotransmitter-containing vesicles are carried in the anterograde direction. Although retrograde transport is always relatively fast (around 3 millimeters per hour), anterograde transport can be either fast or slow (several millimeters per day) .

He correctly surmised that the differential effects of the two alkaloids resulted from the existence of two different types of cholinergic receptor. Today, of course, we call them nicotinic and muscarinic ACh receptors according to Dale's discovery. Since Dale's pioneering work, receptors for many hormones and neurotransmitters have been identified. 1) can be used to assess the effect of specific neurotransmitters or analog drugs applied to neuronal membranes suspected of containing a particular receptor.

Because they are farther from the Ca 2+ channels at the active zone, a Ca 2+ concentration high enough to produce fusion of such vesicles with the membrane may be attained only when the terminal is invaded by a high frequency of spikes. Preparation of Vesicles for Release When a spike invades the ending, only a small fraction of the total number of vesicles disgorge their contents. The ones that do, therefore, must be prepared in some way that the others are not . Just as nuclear missiles are armed immediately before being loaded into the launcher, the synaptic vesicle must be "cocked" and "docked" at the active zone (Fig.
