The effects of metoclopramide on smooth muscle contraction and on release of acetylcholine were studied in the guinea-pig myenteric plexus longitudinal muscle preparation. Acetylcholine was determined either as endogenous acetylcholine, or as labelled transmitter from strips preloaded with 3H-choline. Metoclopramide caused an increase in resting tension of(More)
The effects of 5-hydroxykynuramine (5-OH-K) and of 3-(2-amino-5-hydroxyphenyl)-propaneamine (AHPP) on spontaneous and electrically evoked release of [3H]acetylcholine were studied in the guinea-pig myenteric plexus longitudinal muscle preparation preincubated with [3H]choline. 5-OH-K caused a concentration-dependent increase in spontaneous [3H]acetylcholine(More)
The effects of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) on spontaneous and electrically-evoked release of [3H]-acetylcholine (ACh) from guinea-pig myenteric plexus preparations preincubated with [3H]-choline have been investigated in the absence of cholinesterase inhibitors. 5-HT caused a transient increase in spontaneous release and an inhibition of the(More)
The effects of lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) on acetylcholine release and on smooth muscle tone were studied in the myenteric plexus-longitudinal muscle preparation of the guinea pig. LSD (0.01-10 microM) depressed in a concentration-dependent manner the electrically-evoked [3H]-acetylcholine outflow from strips preincubated with [3H]-choline. The(More)
