The release of acetylcholine was measured during field stimulation of the isolated vas deferens of the rat. The rate of release was frequency-dependent; the higher the frequency used, the higher was the amount of acetylcholine released. Tetrodotoxin reduced the release of acetylcholine induced by field stimulation, but pretreatment with 6-hydroxydopamine did not.
