The effect of human alpha-calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) on epithelial ion transport was investigated in guinea pig distal colon set up in Ussing flux chambers. Addition of CGRP to the serosal bathing solution evoked a dose-dependent increase in short-circuit current in whole-thickness tissues with intact myenteric and submucosal ganglia, but not in(More)
This study examined the effects of electrically stimulating submucosal neurons in the guinea pig isolated distal colonic mucosa and determined the effects of several peptides that are present in these neurons. Electrical field stimulation of muscle-stripped segments of guinea pig distal colonic mucosa, set up in Ussing flux chambers, evoked an increase in(More)
Chronic treatment of mice with clonidine or morphine reduced the sensitivity of the isolated, field-stimulated, vas deferens to the inhibitory effects of acutely administered clonidine and morphine. Chronic treatment of mice with clonidine produced a postsynaptic non-specific supersensitivity to noradrenaline and carbachol, but not to potassium chloride.(More)
