We isolated the guinea pig right bronchus with the vagus nerves intact and evaluated the changes in isometric tension of the smooth muscle in response to nerve stimulation. Brief (10-s) trains of electrical field stimulation or vagus nerve stimulation caused a biphasic contraction: the "first phase" sensitive to atropine and the "second phase" sensitive to(More)
Vasoactive liabilities are typically assayed using wire myography, which is limited by its high cost and low throughput. To meet the demand for higher throughput in vitro alternatives, this study introduces a magnetic 3D bioprinting-based vasoactivity assay. The principle behind this assay is the magnetic printing of vascular smooth muscle cells into 3D(More)
AZ11637326 (5'-(2-fluoro[3,4,5(-3)H3]phenyl)-spiro[1-azabicyclo [2.2.2]octane-3,2'(3'H)-furo[2,3-b]pyridine) is a potent partial agonist at the human alpha7 neuronal nicotinic receptor with sub-nanomolar affinity for the human and rat alpha7 [(125)I]alpha-bungarotoxin binding sites. In a search for novel agonist radioligands and imaging ligands for the(More)
