Transmitter Release Induced by a 'Factor' in Rabbit Serum

Abstract

Non-heated rabbit serum causes massive transmitter release from motor nerve endings. The effect is not observed after heating the serum, in the way usually done to destroy complement. It seems that serum may be acting on the nerve terminals by a mechanism involving the complement system in the absence of antibody.
