Neural signalling: Does colocalization imply cotransmission?

Curr Biol. 1999 Nov 4;9(21):R809-11. doi: 10.1016/s0960-9822(99)80496-5.


Recent results suggest that neurons that contain multiple neurotransmitters may make synaptic connections with different target neurons that are mediated by only a subset of their transmitter complement.
