Modulation of the inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3)-mediated signal transduction pathway by the inhalational anesthetic enflurane was studied in Xenopus oocytes expressing mouse and human cortical mRNA. We found that enflurane significantly inhibited ion currents activated by m1 muscarinic and 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT)1c receptors. This inhibition was(More)
