In the gut, dopamine is released by enteric neurons and modulates motility of small intestine smooth muscle cells. Here, we systematically analyzed the dopamine-induced effects on the longitudinal smooth muscle of different sections of the rat isolated small intestine. We found that exogenous dopamine had biphasic effects and could lead to both an early(More)
The pre- and postjunctional affinity constants of a series of muscarinic antagonists were determined in guinea pig and rabbit irises. Field stimulation-evoked [3H]noradrenaline release from superfused isolated irises was concentration dependently inhibited by (+/-)-methacholine, confirming the presence on the iris noradrenergic nerves of prejunctional(More)
Prejunctional affinity constants of the cardioselective muscarine receptor antagonist AF-DX 116 (11-[(2-[(diethyl-amino)methyl]-1-piperidinyl)acetyl]-5,11-dihydro-6 H-pyrido [2,3-b] [1,4] benzodiazepine-6-one) were determined for muscarine autoreceptors on cholinergic nerves of the guinea-pig ileum and for heteroreceptors on noradrenergic nerves of the rat(More)
