Facilitation of neurotransmitter release in mouse motor synapses in different modes of protein kinase C activation.


PMID 22977833

Abstract

Protein kinase C blocker chelerythrine prevented the increase in quantal content of single and rhythmic evoked end-plate potentials after disinhibition of L-type Ca(2+)-channels with paxillin. Phorbol ester increased quantal content of single end-plate potentials and changed rhythmic activity of mouse motor synapses. The effects of phorbol ester were to a great extent neutralized by L-type Ca(2+)-channel blocker nitrendipine and were completely abolished by K(+)-channel blocker 4-aminopyridine. Thus, we discovered different facilitations of transmission after protein kinase C activation with calcium current through L-type channels and with phorbol ester.
