Fast excitatory synaptic transmission mediated by nicotinic acetylcholine receptors in Drosophila neurons. (1/107)

Difficulty in recording from single neurons in vivo has precluded functional analyses of transmission at central synapses in Drosophila, where the neurotransmitters and receptors mediating fast synaptic transmission have yet to be identified. Here we demonstrate that spontaneously active synaptic connections form between cultured neurons prepared from wild-type embryos and provide the first direct evidence that both acetylcholine and GABA mediate fast interneuronal synaptic transmission in Drosophila. The predominant type of fast excitatory transmission between cultured neurons is mediated by nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs). Detailed analysis of cholinergic transmission reveals that spontaneous EPSCs (sEPSCs) are composed of both evoked and action potential-independent [miniature EPSC (mEPSC)] components. The mEPSCs are characterized by a broad, positively skewed amplitude histogram in which the variance is likely to reflect differences in the currents induced by single quanta. Biophysical characteristics of the cholinergic mEPSCs include a rapid rise time (0.6 msec) and decay (tau = 2 msec). Regulation of mEPSC frequency by external calcium and cobalt suggests that calcium influx through voltage-gated channels influences the probability of ACh release. In addition, brief depolarization of the cultures with KCl can induce a calcium-dependent increase in sEPSC frequency that persists for up to 3 hr after termination of the stimulus, illustrating one form of plasticity at these cholinergic synapses. These data demonstrate that cultured embryonic neurons, amenable to both genetic and biochemical manipulations, present a unique opportunity to define genes/signal transduction cascades involved in functional regulation of fast excitatory transmission at interneuronal cholinergic synapses in Drosophila.  (+info)

Rapid and reversible effects of activity on acetylcholine receptor density at the neuromuscular junction in vivo. (2/107)

Quantitative fluorescence imaging was used to study the regulation of acetylcholine receptor (AChR) number and density at neuromuscular junctions in living adult mice. At fully functional synapses, AChRs have a half-life of about 14 days. However, 2 hours after neurotransmission was blocked, the half-life of the AChRs was now less than a day; the rate was 25 times faster than before. Most of the lost receptors were not quickly replaced. Direct muscle stimulation or restoration of synaptic transmission inhibited this process. AChRs that were removed from nonfunctional synapses resided for hours in the perijunctional membrane before being locally internalized. Dispersed AChRs could also reaggregate at the junction once neurotransmission was restored. The rapid and reversible alterations in AChR density at the neuromuscular junction in vivo parallel changes thought to occur in the central nervous system at synapses undergoing potentiation and depression.  (+info)

Protein kinase C activity regulates slow myosin heavy chain 2 gene expression in slow lineage skeletal muscle fibers. (3/107)

Expression of the slow myosin heavy chain (MyHC) 2 gene defines slow versus fast avian skeletal muscle fiber types. Fetal, or secondary, skeletal muscle fibers express slow MyHC isoform genes in developmentally regulated patterns within the embryo, and this patterning is at least partly dependent on innervation in vivo. We have previously shown that slow MyHC 2 gene expression in vitro is regulated by a combination of innervation and cell lineage. This pattern of gene expression was indistinguishable from the pattern observed in vivo in that it was restricted to innervated muscle fibers of slow muscle origin. We show here that slow MyHC 2 gene expression in the slow muscle fiber lineage is regulated by protein kinase C (PKC) activity. Inhibition of PKC activity induced slow MyHC 2 gene expression, and the capacity to express the slow MyHC 2 gene was restricted to muscle fibers of slow muscle (medial adductor) origin. Fast muscle fibers derived from the pectoralis major did not express significant levels of slow MyHC 2 with or without inhibitors of PKC activity. This differential expression pattern coincided with different inherent PKC activities in fast versus slow muscle fiber types. Furthermore, over-expression of an unregulated PKCalpha mutant suppressed slow MyHC 2 gene expression in muscle fibers of the slow lineage. Lastly, denervation of skeletal muscles caused an increase in PKC activity, particularly in the slow medial adductor muscle. This increase in PKC activity was associated with lack of slow MyHC 2 gene expression in vivo. These results provide a mechanistic link between innervation, an intracellular signaling pathway mediated by PKC, and expression of a muscle fiber type-specific contractile protein gene.

Formation of cholinergic synapses between dissociated sympathetic neurons and skeletal myotubes of the rat in cell culture. (4/107)

Sympathetic principal neurons, dissociated from superior cervical ganglia of newborn rats, were plated into cultures containing rat skeletal myotubes formed from previously plated primary myoblasts. Electrophysiological evidence is presented that the neurons developed cholinergic synapses with the myotubes. In addition, the neurons developed cholinergic synapses with each other as previously reported [O'Lague et al. (1974) Proc. Nat. Acad. Sci. USA 71, 3602-3606]. The acetylcholine receptors of myotubes differed from those of the neurons in their sensitivities to curare and hexamethonium, in a manner expected of adult muscle and ganglionic receptors. alpha-Bungarotoxin blocked synaptic transmission from neuron to myotube, but not from neuron to neuron in the same culture.  (+info)

Spontaneous acetylcholine secretion from developing growth cones of Drosophila central neurons in culture: effects of cAMP-pathway mutations. (5/107)

We describe a novel bioassay system that uses Xenopus embryonic myocytes (myoballs) to detect the release of acetylcholine from Drosophila CNS neurons. When a voltage-clamped Xenopus myoball was manipulated into contact with cultured Drosophila "giant" neurons, spontaneous synaptic current-like events were registered. These events were observed within seconds after contact and were blocked by curare and alpha-bungarotoxin, but not by TTX and Cd(2+), suggesting that they are caused by the spontaneous quantal release of acetylcholine (ACh). The secretion occurred not only at the growth cone, but also along the neurite and at the soma, with significantly different release parameters among various regions. The amplitude of these currents displayed a skewed distribution. These features are distinct from synaptic transmission at more mature synapses or autapses formed in this culture system and are reminiscent of the transmitter release process during early development in other preparations. The usefulness of this coculture system in studying presynaptic secretion mechanisms is illustrated by a series of studies on the cAMP pathway mutations, dunce (dnc) and PKA-RI, which disrupt a cAMP-specific phosphodiesterase and the regulatory subunit of cAMP-dependent protein kinase A, respectively. We found that these mutations affected the ACh current kinetics, but not the quantal ACh packet, and that the release frequency was greatly enhanced by repetitive neuronal activity in dnc, but not wild-type, growth cones. These results suggest that the cAMP pathway plays an important role in the activity-dependent regulation of transmitter release not only in mature synapses as previously shown, but also in developing nerve terminals before synaptogenesis.  (+info)

Dual effects of ether on end-plate currents. (6/107)

1. The effects of diethyl ether (ether) on miniature end-plate currents (m.e.p.c.s) and on acetylcholine-activated end-plate channels were measured in toad sartorius muscle fibres with voltage-clamp and extracellular recording techniques. 2. At low concentrations (less than 20 mM) either made m.e.p.c.s decay faster than normal. At high concentrations (greaster than 40 mM), the decay of m.e.p.c.s was slower than normal. With all concentrations, the cecay remained exponential with single time constant, tau D. 3. At low concentrations ether did not affect the growth phase of m.e.p.c.s and only slightly reduced the amplitude of m.e.p.c.s. At the higher concentrations, the growth phase was slowed and m.e.p.c.s were significantly reduced in amplitude. 4. Ether at all concentrations (5--70 mM) reduced end-plate channel lifetime, the effect increasing with ether concentration. Ether did not significantly alter the elementary channel conductance or the actylcholine null (reversal) potential. 5. Curare reduced tau D which had been prolonged by high concentrations of ether. Ether itself at high concentrations caused a reduction in tau D increased by neostigmine. It is proposed that high concentrations of either inhibit acetylcholine hydrolysis by acetylcholinesterase. 6. The effect of ether in reducing end-plate channel lifetime and reducing m.e.p.c. amplitude, without significantly altering the normal voltage and temperature sensitivity of channel lifetime, is consistent with the proposal that either reduces the stability of open end-plate channels.  (+info)

The effects of prolonged repetitive stimulation in hemicholinium on the frog neuromuscular junction. (7/107)

1. Cutaneous pectoris nerve-muscle preparations from the frog were stimulated for prolonged periods in solutions with curare alone, curare and hemicholinium no. 3 (HC-3), or curare and glucose plus choline. End-plate potentials (e.p.p.s) and miniature end-plate potentials (m.e.p.p.s) were recorded intracellularly. Black widow spider venom (BWSV) was applied to determine the degree of depletion of the transmitter stores. 2. The ultrastructure of the neuromuscular junctions was studied in the electron microscope. Some of the preparations were fixed immediately at the end of the period of stimulation and others were fixed about an hour after BWSV had been applied. In some experiments horseradish peroxidase (HRP) was present during the period of stimulation and the fixed tissue was treated to reveal the distribution of the tracer. 3. The amplitude of the e.p.p. fell rapidly to almost zero during 2 hr of stimulation at 2/sec in 100 muM HC-3 and little recovery occurred during a subsequent hour of rest. About 2-7 times 10-5 quanta were secreted. The e.p.p.s usually persisted throughout the period of stimulation in the other solutions and 2-2-6 times as much transmitter was secreted. 4. When BWSV was applied immediately at the end of the period of stimulation in HC-3, almost no m.e.p.p.s were discharged and only small m.e.p.p.s were discharged when the venom was applied after an hour of rest. 5. When BWSV was applied to unstimulated terminals that had been bathed in HC-3, or to terminals that had been stimulated and rested for an hour in glucose plus choline, m.e.p.p.s of nearly normal amplitude were discharged. 6. Terminals stimulated for 2 hr at 2/sec in 100 muM HC-3 contained a normal complement of synaptic vesicles and a large proportion of vesicles were labelled with HRP when the tracer was present during the period of stimulation. 7. BWSV induced the almost complete depletion of vesicles from terminals that had been stimulated in HC-3. 8. Depletion of vesicles also occurred when terminals were stimulated for 20 min at 10/sec after they had been previously stimulated for 2 hr at 2/sec in HC-3. These terminals showed extensive infolding of the axolemma and they contained swollen mitochondria. 9. These results indicate that stimulation in HC-3 depletes terminals of their store of transmitter but not of their population of vesicles and that vesicles empty of transmitter can fuse with and reform from the axolemma of the nerve terminal.  (+info)

The action of acetylcholine antagonists on amino acid responses in the frog spinal cord in vitro. (8/107)

1 The isolated hemisected frog spinal cord has been used to study the action of acetylcholine antagonists on amino acid responses by means of sucrose gap recording. 2 Primary afferents and motoneurones were shown to contain few, if any, cholinoceptors, since acetylcholine and carbachol responses were essentially abolished when synaptic transmission was blocked with magnesium ions or when action potentials were blocked by tetrodotoxin. 3 Curare antagonized the gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and beta-alanine depolarizations of primary afferents and hyperpolarizing action of these amino acids on motoneurones. Nicotine also antagonized beta-alanine depolarizations and to a small extent GABA depolarizations of primary afferents. These actions are similar to but weaker than those obtained previously with picrotoxin. 4 Atropine selectively antagonized beta-alanine depolarizations of primary afferents and blocked beta-alanine and glycine hyperpolarizations of motoneurones. GABA responses were entirely resistant to the action of atropine. These actions are similar to but 50 times weaker than those obtained previously with strychnine. 5 Dihydro-beta-erythroidine, tetraethylammonium, and gallamine were entirely ineffective in antagonizing amino acid responses. Since these agents are known to block the dorsal root potential elicited by ventral root stimulation but have no effect on the amino acid responses of primary afferents, it is evident that a cholinergic step is involved in this pathway.  (+info)

Normally, this receptor binds the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which is released by motor neurons (nerve cells which control muscle). When d-tubocurarine is present, it blocks the acetylcholine binding site of the receptor and prevents acetylcholine from depolarizing the muscle. This, in turn, prevents muscle contraction. Curare causes death by paralysis of the respiratory muscles, particularly the diaphragm. Presumably, cooking the meat renders the d-tubocurarine inactive, although Im not certain about this.

The complex series of events making up neuromuscular transmission is subject to interference at several steps. Presynaptic blockade of the neuromuscular junction can occur if calcium does not enter the presynaptic terminal to participate in migration and emptying of the synaptic vesicles. The drug hemicholinium interferes with choline uptake by the presynaptic terminal and, thus, results in the depletion of ACh. Botulinum toxin interferes with ACh release. This bacterial toxin is used to treat focal dystonias (see Clinical Focus Box 9.1).. Postsynaptic blockade can result from a variety of circumstances. Drugs that partially mimic the action of ACh can be effective blockers. Derivatives of curare, originally used as arrow poison in South America, bind tightly to ACh receptors. This binding does not result in opening of the ion channels, however, and the endplate potential is reduced in proportion to the number of receptors occupied by curare. Muscle paralysis results. Although the muscle can be ...

Hemifacial spasm develops by vascular compression of facial nerve at the root exit zone from brain stem. Microvascular decompression (MVD) is known for its curative treatment. Lateral spread response (LSR) is a kind of pathologic electromyographic (EMG) wave form which develops when facial nerve is compressed by vessel. There have been reports of monitoring LSR during MVD surgery helps predicting the clinical outcome of MVD.. As neuromuscular blockade during LSR monitoring decreases the amplitude of EMG, partial neuromuscular blockade is usually maintained during general anesthesia for MVD. However, there have been no evidence of which degree of partial neuromuscular blockade should be performed during LSR monitoring under sevoflurane anesthesia. Therefore, the investigators performed a randomized controlled trial to evaluate the effect of different degree of partial neuromuscular blockade on the LSR monitoring for MVD surgery. ...

Studies are carried out in cats anesthetized with Nembutal in order to observe the effects on the indirectly stimulated quadriceps muscle when the animal has received prostigmine under curarization. The following observations are made.. Picrotoxin has practically no effect. What little it does have seems to be a feeble reinforcement of the effect of prostigmine and of curare (fig. 1 and Section A of Results).. Strychnine has a complex reaction. For a few seconds it reinforces the action of curare and of prostigmine and then produces a moderate decurarization or a violent deprostigminization (fig. 2 and Section B of Results).. Metrazol weakly reinforces the action of prostigmine and behaves as a decurarizing drug (fig. 3 and Sec. C of Results).. The behaviour of these three substances is discussed in the light of our present knowledge of the theory of neural transmission. The conclusion is drawn that the behavior of picrotoxin and strychnine cannot be explained by the classical theory of the two ...
Finally, we found that DC sensing of HIV-1 and HIV-2 required the DNA sensor cGAS.

The dead little girl begs Salk to try one last time and solve her murder.. ...
Chondrodendron tomentosum undergoes sexual reproduction like other flowering plants. It is a dioecious plant, meaning it has male and female flowers. The plant produces sperm, which is what most of us call pollen, and is distributed by wind and animals to other plants. The sperm then has to unite with an egg inside the stigma of the plant. A seed is produced from the fertilized egg, and this then germinates once in the ground. The germinating seed then continues to grow into the adult plant and the process repeats itself. The diagram below shows the cycle. The ovary of the Chondrodendron tomentosum is quite underdeveloped compared to the other flowering plants. It is a primitive plant with the other Ranunculales plants.. ...

Some history: Toxicology as a formally recognized scientific discipline is relatively new (mid 1900s) although the science itself is thousands of years old. Consider the potential results of early trial and error experiences of hunter-gatherers for whom identifying a toxic plant or animal was a life or death situation. Some of the most poisonous substances known today are naturally produced chemicals including Ricin from castor beans or tetrodotoxin from the puffer fish. Early humans careful observation of plants or animals with toxic characteristics such as frogs containing curare, were put to use not only for avoidance of toxic substances but for weapons as well. Additionally, many naturally derived poisons were likely used for hunting, medicinals (the Egyptians were aware of many toxic substances such as lead, opium and hemlock as early as 1500 BCE), and eventually for the political poisonings practiced, for example, by the early Greeks and Romans. As humans sought to better understand ...

I am deperately trying to remember scopolamine. I think it was derived from the Deadly Nightshade, not sure*. The sequence of events used to be the patient was given a so-called pre-med consisting of, usually, Omnopon (a narcotic) with scopolomine intra-muscularly, about an hour before going to theatre. This prepared the patient to receive the anaesthetic and made them calm and drowsy. The scopolomine dried up secretions, giving an unpleasant dry mouth but reducing the likelyhood of developing pneumonia. Then they were taken to theatre where they were given sodium pentathol intravenously to induce unconsciousness and were maintaned at the desired level of consciousness by a gas, such as halothane. They also had a dose of curare which parylised all their muscles, including the muscles of respiration, so the anaesthetist would keep them alive by ventilating them through a Boyles machine ...

Tubocurarine (also known as d-tubocurarine or DTC) is a toxic alkaloid historically known for its use as an arrow poison. In the mid-1900s, it was used in conjunction with an anesthetic to provide skeletal muscle relaxation during surgery or mechanical ventilation. It is now rarely used as an adjunct for clinical anesthesia because safer alternatives, such as cisatracurium and rocuronium, are available. Tubocurarine is a naturally occurring mono-quaternary alkaloid obtained from the bark of the South American plant Chondrodendron tomentosum, a climbing vine known to the European world since the Spanish conquest of South America. Curare had been used as a source of arrow poison by South American natives to hunt animals, and they were able to eat the animals contaminated flesh subsequently without any adverse effects because tubocurarine cannot easily cross mucous membranes.Thus, tubocurarine is effective only if given parenterally, as demonstrated by Bernard, who also showed that the site of its ...
Historic researchers in NMJ: In 1672, Myasthenia gravis (MG) was first described by Thomas Willis. It is an acquired autoimmune disease with antibodies against the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (AChR) at the NMJ. [1] In 1842, Claude Bernard concluded that the arrow poison curare acts at the NMJ to interrupt the stimulation of muscle by nerve impulses. [2] In 1850, Claude Bernard demonstrated that the observed paralysis was mediated via the NMJ, although the precise mechanism was at that time unknown. [3] In 1914, Sir Henry Dale, (in 1936, he was warded the Nobel Prize for Medicine and Physiology), investigating the pharmacological properties of ACh, distinguished two actions that were reproduced by the alkaloids, muscarine and nicotine. As the effects of muscarine mimicked the parasympathetic nervous system, he termed the receptors muscarinic, whereas those in autonomic ganglia and at the skeletal NMJ were termed nicotinic. [4] In 1952 - 1954, the name end-plate potential is used since ...
The first chemical in the series is sodium thiopental, a short-acting barbiturate. Properly administered, all sides agree, it is sufficient to render an inmate unconscious for many hours, if not to kill him. The second chemical is pancuronium bromide, a relative of curare. If administered by itself, it paralyzes the body but leaves the subject conscious, suffocating but unable to cry out. The third, potassium chloride, stops the heart and causes excruciating pain as it travels through the veins ...
The Yanomami. The Yanomami are one of the largest relatively isolated tribes in South America. They live in the rainforests and mountains of northern Brazil and southern Venezuela, and today their total population stands at around 32,000. At over 9.6 million hectares, the Yanomami territory in Brazil is twice the size of Switzerland. In Venezuela, the Yanomami live in the 8.2 million hectare Alto Orinoco - Casiquiare Biosphere Reserve. Together, these areas form the largest forested indigenous territory in the world.. The Yanomami live in large, circular, communal houses called yanos or shabonos. Some house up to 400 people. The Yanomami believe strongly in equality among people. Each community is independent from others and they do not recognize chiefs. Decisions are made by consensus, frequently after long debates where everybody has a say.. Like most Amazonian tribes, tasks are divided between the sexes. Men hunt game, often using curare (a plant extract) to poison their prey. Women tend ...

Antiarins are cardiac glycoside poisons produced by the upas tree (Antiaris toxicaria). There are two forms, α-antiarin and β-antiarin. β-Antiarin, a cardiac glycoside steroid, can be isolated from upas tree latex (Antiaris toxicaria). Its use ranges from medical use, such as hypertension treatment, to arrow poison application. It also proves to be more poisonous than curare, sporting a low LD50 of 0.1 mg/kg in most mammals. To date, β-antiarin has only been isolated from the upas tree by the scientist H. Kiliani in 1896; no synthetic synthesis has yet been achieved. Upon β-antiarin poisoning, when observed in animals such as frogs and small mammals, visible symptoms include muscle spasms - particularly of the head and neck - and excess defecation. Paralysis can also be presented before death. The primary physiological system affected is the cardiac muscle, though gastro-intestinal tissue has also been known to be severely affected by this type of poisoning. Convulsions and spasms are not ...
Cecil Gray looked imposing, but he was kind; he had an infectious sense of humour, and he saved millions of lives, not to mention making major operations less painful. Professor Cecil Gray, who died January 5th at 95, revolutionised the practice of anaesthesia.. "Before the Second World War major operations in the chest or abdomen required the patient to be given extremely deep anaesthesia, usually with ether." Muscles did not completely relax, so they had to be cut, leaving unsightly scars, and babies with congenital heart defects died. After the Second World War, which almost killed Gray, he experimented with using the drug curare, an extremely effective muscle relaxant. With colleagues at the Liverpool School of Medicine, he developed the "Liverpool Method", the basis of modern anaesthetic practice. Later, working with Jackson Rees, he developed keyhole surgery for babies.. Thank you, Professor Gray ...
Edme Vulpian (1826-1887). 1889 illustration of the French neurologist Edme Felix Alfred Vulpian. Vulpian discovered the chromaffin system of the adrenal gland, and studied the action of drugs such as curare, strychnine and nicotine. He taught and researched neurophysiology and in 1862 took over the running of the Salpetriere mental hospital, Paris, France, with fellow neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot. In 1867, he was appointed professor of pathological anatomy at the faculty of medicine and, in 1872, took the chair of experimental and comparative anatomy. - Stock Image C036/0190

1. The activity of comb plates of Pleurobrachia was analysed from cine films.. 2. The interval between successive beats of a comb plate varied from several seconds to about 50 msec. in normal sea water; this variation in frequency was accompanied by a variation wave velocity. There was an almost linear relationship between wave velocity and frequency, ranging from a minimal wave velocity of about 20 mm./sec. at low frequencies to a maximal wave velocity of about 80 mm./sec. at the highest frequencies.. 3. The wave velocity was accelerated at low frequencies by increased Mg2+ concentrations, by ouabain and by curare, and the same substances decreased the wave velocity at high frequencies.. 4. The frequency of beat was accelerated by certain concentrations of adrenaline, serotonin, Mg2+, ouabain and curare. Decreases of frequency were found in acetylcholine (and eserine) and strychnine. These substances act on the excitability of the pacemaker.. 5. It is concluded that metachronal transmission is ...
Like many other biologically active substances, acetylcholine exerts its effects by binding to and activating receptors located on the surface of cells. There are two main classes of acetylcholine receptor, nicotinic and muscarinic. They are named for chemicals that can selectively activate each type of receptor without activating the other: muscarine is a compound found in the mushroom Amanita muscaria; nicotine is found in tobacco.. Nicotinic acetylcholine receptors are ligand-gated ion channels permeable to sodium, potassium, and calcium ions. In other words, they are ion channels embedded in cell membranes, capable of switching from a closed to open state when acetylcholine binds to them; in the open state they allow ions to pass through. Nicotinic receptors come in two main types, known as muscle-type and neuronal-type. The muscle-type can be selectively blocked by curare, the neuronal-type by hexamethonium. The main location of muscle-type receptors is on muscle cells, as described in more ...
Frog sciatic nerves were excised and treated in a Ringers solution containing the surface-active agent, cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTMB). Such CTMB-treated nerves were compared to normal, untreated nerves with respect to their susceptibility to conduction block produced by six lipid-insoluble quaternary ammonium ions; the CTMB-treated nerves were rendered especially susceptible to rapid, reversible conduction block. A possible mechanism of CTMB action is proposed, involving chemo-dissection of permeability barriers which normally surround the individual axons. The findings that acetylcholine, curare, etc. can produce reversible, axonal conduction block in CTMB-treated nerves are not inconsistent with a theory of cholinergic impulse conduction.. ...
This third installment of the history of basic airway management discusses the transitional-"progressive"-years of anesthesia from 1904 to 1960. During these 56 yr, airway management was provided primarily by basic techniques with or without the use of a face mask. Airway maneuvers were inherited from the artisanal era: head extension and mandibular advancement. The most common maneuver was head extension, also used in bronchoscopy and laryngoscopy. Basic airway management success was essential for traditional inhalation anesthesia (ether, chloroform) and for the use of the new anesthetic agents (cyclopropane, halothane) and intravenous drugs (thiopental, curare, succinylcholine ...
Neuronal nicotinic ACh receptors (nAChRs) are present in the rat medial habenula (MHB) and interpeduncular nucleus (IPN), two brain regions connected through the fasciculus retroflexus (FR). The goal of the present study was to compare the electrophysiological and pharmacological characteristics of nAChRs located at pre- and postsynaptic sites within the MHB-IPN system. nAChRs located on the soma of IPN neurons were studied using patch-clamp techniques and a preparation of acutely isolated neurons. Whole-cell currents evoked by Ach and nicotine showed an intense rectification at positive membrane potentials. nAChR channels were relatively nonselective for cations, had a unitary conductance of 35 pS, and were activated by several nicotinic agonists with the following rank order: cytisine greater than ACh greater than nicotine greater than dimethylphenylpiperazinium (DMPP). They were blocked by mecamylamine, hexamethonium, curare, and dihydro-beta-erythroidine (DHBE), but were insensitive to ...
Most histamine in the body is generated in granules in mast cells and in white blood cells called basophils andeosinophils. Mast cells are especially numerous at sites of potential injury -- the nose, mouth, and feet, internal body surfaces, and blood vessels. Non-mast cell histamine is found in several tissues, including the brain, where it functions as a neurotransmitter. Another important site of histamine storage and release is the enterochromaffin-like (ECL) cell of the stomach.. The most important pathophysiologic mechanism of mast cell and basophil histamine release is immunologic. These cells, if sensitized byIgE antibodies attached to their membranes, degranulate when exposed to the appropriate antigen. Certain amines and alkaloids, including such drugs as morphine, and curare alkaloids, can displace histamine in granules and cause its release. Antibiotics likepolymyxin are also found to stimulate histamine release.. Histamine release occurs when allergens bind to mast-cell-bound IgE ...
The drugs discussed in this chapter decrease muscle excitability and contraction by acting at the spinal cord level, at the neuromuscular junction, or within the muscle cell itself. Some texts also classify neuromuscular junction blockers such as curare derivatives and succinylcholine as skeletal muscle relaxants. However, these drugs are more appropriately classified as skeletal muscle paralytics because they eliminate muscle contraction by blocking transmission at the myoneural synapse. This type of skeletal muscle paralysis is used primarily during general anesthesia (see Chapter 11). Skeletal muscle relaxants do not typically prevent muscle contraction; they only attempt to normalize muscle excitability to decrease pain and improve motor function. ...

We report nine patients with muscle aching, cramps, stiffness, exercise intolerance, and peripheral nerve hyperexcitability. Neurologic examination showed calf fasciculations in seven, quadriceps myokymia in two, and deltoid myokymia in one patient. Two patients had mild increase in serum creatine kinase. Muscle biopsy showed either no abnormality (three patients) or mild neurogenic changes (four patients). Fasciculations were the only abnormality on routine electrodiagnostic studies. Supramaximal stimulation of the median, ulnar, peroneal, and posterior tibial nerves at frequencies of 0.5, 1,2, and 5 Hz produced showers of electrical potentials following the M response in at least one nerve. In three patients, the fasciculations and evoked electrical potentials were abolished by regional application of curare but not nerve block. Carbamazepine therapy caused moderate-to-marked reduction of symptoms and nerve hyperexcitability. We designate this hyperexcitable peripheral nerve disorder as the ...
