Mathematical Model Study of Continuous Transmitter Release in the Synaptic Terminal of Goldfish Retinal Bipolar Cells

The giant synaptic terminals of Mbl bipolar cells isolated from the goldfish retina are suitable for the physiological study of transmitter release mechanisms. It has been shown that there are multiple components of exocytosis and endocytosis with different kinetics and Ca2+ dependence. Thus, it is difficult to evaluate the contribution of each component to the transmitter release.
