1. Under certain conditions D-lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), 10(-9)-10(-6) g/ml., exerted an immediate, prolonged and slowly reversible inhibitory effect upon the post-ganglionic motor transmission in desheathed guinea-pig vas deferens preparations.2. The most critical factor influencing this action of LSD appeared to be the train length. With short(More)
1. In mucosa-free preparations of the detrusor muscle electrical stimulation with 0.1 msec pulses has been utilized to reveal the non-cholinergic nature of most, if not all, of the post-ganglionic motor neurones in the guinea-pig bladder.2. The twitches elicited by 0.1 msec pulses were abolished by tetrodotoxin, but were not reduced by dimethyltubocurarine(More)
1. Using field stimulation with short trains of pulses (< 10 per train), the post-ganglionic motor transmission in the mammalian vas deferens has been further analysed pharmacologically.2. In preparations taken from guinea-pigs, rats and rabbits the effects of the indirectly sympathomimetic drugs, tyramine and cocaine, could be explained entirely on the(More)
An easy and relatively rapid procedure for distinguishihg the ketonic prostaglandins E (PGEs) from the nonketonic prostaglandins F (PGFs) and other hydroxy-acid lipid spasmogens is presented. The method depends on the ability of certain hydrazine derivatives to combine specifically with keto groups. Girard's reagent T (trimethyl-ammonium-acetohydrazide(More)
