Abstract

INVESTIGATION of the adrenal medulla1,2 and the Torpedo electroplax3 suggested that ATP plays some part in the storage and release of chemical transmitters. The fluid bathing contracting amphibian muscle contains ATP, but this ATP was thought to be released from the muscle 4. We present here evidence that ATP is released from motor nerve terminals on indirect stimulation of a mammalian nerve-muscle preparation.
