  • "Neurotoxic effects of ammodytin L (AtnL) a potent phospholipase A2 homologue, was studied in frog neuromuscular preparation m. cutaneus pectoris by measuring the influence of the toxin on the amplitude and the frequency of miniature and endplate potentials (MEPPs, EPPs). Atnl, in 100 nM concentration, significantly increases spontaneous quantal acetylcholine release from the motor nerve endings, observed as the increase in MEPPs frequency. At 100 nM or higher concentration the toxin decreases EPPs amplitude and the membrane potential (MP) simultaneously. No significant effect of AtnL on EPPs was observed at any concetration bellow 100 nM. Our results indicate that in frog AtnL shows the typical myotoxic effects, but it also exerts presynaptic effects."
