Disease relevance of Ganglia, Sympathetic


High impact information on Ganglia, Sympathetic

  • In the anlagen of the enteric nervous system and the sympathetic ganglia, Phox2b is needed for the expression of the GDNF-receptor subunit Ret and for maintaining Mash1 expression [6].
  • Similarly, injection or expression of G beta gamma subunits in sympathetic ganglion neurons induces facilitation and occludes modulation of N-type channels by noradrenaline, but G alpha subunits do not [7].
  • In the two types of principal neurones in frog sympathetic ganglia, B and C cells, a twofold difference in the mean open time of the nicotinic acetylcholine (ACh-gated) ion channels accounts for the twofold difference in the decay rate of their fast excitatory postsynaptic currents (e.p.s.cs) [8].
  • Calcium transients associated with either intracellular release or the inward movement of Ca2+ across the membrane have been recorded in molluscan neurons and more recently in neurones of bullfrog sympathetic ganglia [9].
  • In bullfrog sympathetic ganglia, acetylcholine (ACh) release from presynaptic nerve terminals is potentiated for a long time by adrenaline through a cyclic AMP system [10].
