Gastrointestinal hormones, gastrin, cholecystokinin (CCK), and motilin, are known to induce contraction of digestive smooth muscle cells from various species. In this paper, we studied the effect of calcium channel blockers, diltiazem, nicardipine, and pinaverium on the hormone-dependent contraction of smooth muscle cells isolated from rabbit antrum.(More)
In this work, we investigated the ability of anti-tissue sera to cause contraction of smooth muscle cells (SMC) in vitro. Therefore, we compared the effects of a horse immune serum raised against hog gastric tissue (SER 292), of its globulin fraction (SER 292 globulin), and of its IgG fraction (SER 292 IgG), on concentration of isolated SMC from the gastric(More)
