Acetylcholine treatment of [3H]inositol pre-labelled cultured chick embryo myotubes results in the stimulation of phosphatidylinositol breakdown, as shown by the measurement of inositol-1-phosphate accumulating in the presence of lithium. The described effect is dependent on agonist concentration and incubation time, and is inhibited by tubocurarine and α-bungarotoxin. The activation of phosphatidylinositol breakdown by acetylcholine at extrajunctional nicotinic receptors is likely to be involved in the modulation of the functional activity of the receptor. © 1985.
