By E. Giacobini, M. Marchi (auth.), Giancarlo Pepeu, Herbert Ladinsky (eds.)

Every 3 years early Spring witnesses the convening of a small workforce of neuroscientists from many elements of the area. they're dedicated to the examine of acetylcholine, the oldest of the identified neurotransmitters. to evaluate the extent of data, to take inventory of the nonetheless unsolved difficulties, to judge the sensible which means in their findings, the cholinologists first met in 1969 within the eerie surroundings of a snow-covered Swedish wooded area, the second one within the Swiss Alps, the 3rd dealing with the surf and foam of the Paci­ fic waves. ultimately in March 1980 Florence, her bushes burgeoning within the light rain of March, faced them with the temptation of her monuments and museums. however the cholinologists bravely dismis­ sed the enticements and went on with the displays and discus­ sions of the numerous papers which shape the current publication. The papers describe the newest improvement of investiga­ tions on acetylcholine. They open with an intensive insurance of the developmental and phylogenetic points of the cholinergic neurons. The legislation of acetylcholine synthesis, unlock, put up­ synaptic, electric and trophic results within the peripheral chol­ inergic synapses together with ganglia, neuromuscular junction, myen­ theric plexus and center is then lined. distinct emphasis is given to the cholinergic mechanisms within the eye.

Example text

However, a decrease in CAT activity could be indicative of a reduced number of terminals as well as of reduced synthesis or transport of the enzyme protein. Age dependent changes in the affinity properties of the enzyme. h~ve been ruled out (25) and variations involving properties of AcCoA are not known. Many other studies (4,12,38,44) strongly indicate that the high affinity Ch system present in the terminals is tightly coupled to ACh synthesis. The percentage of Ch taken up by the high affinity system which is converted to ACh in the adult iris seems to be relatively unvaried (35-45%) under a variety of experimental conditions (40}.
