Involvement of Calcium in the Secretion of Catecholamines

Part of the Biological Council book series

Abstract

The role of calcium as the stimulus-secretion coupling agent in the adrenal medulla has been soundly established in the papers which Douglas and his colleagues have published since 1961 (Douglas, 1968). However, three major questions concerning the calcium-dependent secretion of catecholamines remain unanswered. These are, first, how is calcium entry into chromaffin cells regulated; second, what is the nature of the process activated by calcium; third, how is calcium removed from the cells at the end of the secretory response? Evidence touching upon these three questions is discussed here.
