Measurements of the quantal content in neuromuscular transmission of the Antarctic fish Pagothenia borchgrevinki - end plate potential recordings from muscle fibres
Entry ID: K012_1984_1985_NZ_1

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Antarctic fish Pagothenia borchgrevinki was captured from near Scott Base and used to measure the quantal content in neuromuscular transmission of Antarctic fish. The amount of neurotransmitter chemical released by a nerve to stimulate a muscle is strongly temperature dependent and it was investigated whether the amount of chemical released is increased in Antarctic animals to overcome the ...
