Problems concerning the Compartmentation of Acetylcholine in the Synaptic Region

  • R. M. Marchbanks
Chapter

Abstract

A compartment is a space into or out of which the free movement by diffusion of certain substances is restricted. This definition uses only kinetic criteria in that the existence of a barrier to diffusion is a sufficient condition for the existence of a compartment. In practice, however, a morphological criterion; that is the existence of a space bounded by observable membranes, is almost invariably regarded as diagnostic of a compartment.
