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-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 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 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)
