The binding of lanthanum to murine neuroblastoma cells (clone N1E-115) was studied by means of electron microscopy and x-ray microanalysis. Lanthanum bound only to cellular membranes, in a nonuniform manner. This lanthanum binding was reduced by pharmacological agents that affect muscarinic receptors of these cells or the function of the receptors. These results suggest that this binding of lanthanum is to sites closely related to muscarinic receptors in the cells.
