Microelectrode recordings were made from 5-10 micron dia axons of adult rat spinal cord in vitro. Action potentials in response to electrical stimulation were recorded intracellularly and electrical characteristics of the axons were examined by injecting current pulses through a bridge circuit. All action potentials larger in amplitude than 80 mV were(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of the intracolonic transient receptor potential (TRP) A1 agonist allyl isothiocyanate (AITC) on colonic motility and defecation. METHODS The effects of AITC administered into the proximal colonic lumen on colonic motility and defecation were studied in neurally intact dogs equipped(More)
The rabbit facial vein exhibits extracellular Ca2+- and temperature-dependent spontaneous myogenic tone in response to stretch. The present study aimed to elucidate pharmacological characteristics of Ca2+ entry mechanisms responsible for the stretch-induced tension development of the rabbit facial vein. Ca2+- and temperature-sensitive vascular tone in(More)
