Neurotransmitter Detection

Synaptic cells and neuronal cells send electrochemical signals

Neurotransmitters are chemicals that transmit messages between neurons or between neurons and effector cells, act as "messengers" throughout the process. According to the chemical composition characteristics of neurotransmitters, there are mainly cholines, monoamines, amino acids and neuropeptides, etc. Currently, neurotransmitters that have been identified include dopamine, norepinephrine, acetylcholine, serotonin and so on.

In the process of neuron information transmission, when a neuron is stimulated by signals from the environment or other neurons, the transmitters stored in the presynaptic vesicles can be released to the synaptic cleft and act on the postsynaptic membrane and transmitting transmitter signals to the next neuron. Neurotransmitters mainly transmit signals in paracrine mode, so they are fast and accurate. The termination of the transmitter signal can depend on the decomposition and destruction of the corresponding hydrolase on the synaptic cleft or posterior membrane, or the body weight uptake by the presynaptic membrane-specific transporter.

Application of Neurotransmitter Detection

In recent years, neurotransmitters have become the subject of intensive research. For instance, acetylcholine has been widely studied due to its effect on alertness, memory and learning, which are essential neurotransmitters in the central nervous system. In addition, the detection of neurotransmitters also plays a very important role in the study of epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, metabolic diseases and tumors.
