1. Pyridoxalphosphate-6-azophenyl-2',4'-disulphonic acid (PPADS), an inhibitor of P2X-purinoceptor-mediated responses in rabbit vas deferens, was investigated for its ability to antagonize contractions evoked by alpha,beta-methylene ATP (alpha,beta-MeATP), carbachol and electrical field stimulation in the rabbit urinary bladder detrusor muscle. 2. PPADS.(More)
Follicular oocytes of Xenopus laevis possess P1 purinoceptors where, seemingly, both adenosine (Ado) and ATP are agonists. The basis of ATP agonism at this P1 purinoceptor was investigated using electrophysiological and biochemical procedures. Ado and ATP activated an outward K+ current that reversed at -90 mV, was reduced by TEA and was inhibited by(More)
Ionic currents evoked by alpha, omega-adenine dinucleotides (ApXA; X = 2-6) in follicular oocytes of Xenopus laevis were studied under voltage-clamp conditions. Dinucleotides evoked inward and outward currents in Xenopus oocytes by activating native P1 and P2 purinoceptors known to be present on the follicle cell monolayer enveloping oocytes. Inward(More)
1. Capsaicin, a selective sensory neurotoxin, was given to newborn rats and at the age of 3 months the contractile activity of the urinary bladder detrusor muscle and vas deferens evoked by either electrical field stimulation (EFS) or exogenous adenosine 5'-triphosphate (ATP) and carbachol (urinary bladder), or ATP and noradrenaline (vas deferens) were(More)
Experiments on isolated preparations of varicose human great saphenous vein revealed different sensitivity of the distal and proximal portions to P2X receptor agonist α,β-methylene-ATP, but not to norepinephrine and histamine. It is suggested that restructuring of the P2 receptor system plays an important role in the pathogenesis of varicose veins, which(More)
1. 2,2'-Pyridylisatogen tosylate (PIT) has been reported to be an irreversible antagonist of responses to adenosine 5'-triphosphate (ATP) at metabotropic purinoceptors (of the P2Y family) in some smooth muscles. When a recombinant P2Y1 purinoceptor (derived from chick brain) is expressed in Xenopus oocytes, ATP and 2-methylthioATP (2-MeSATP) evoke(More)
