[The role of ATP-receptor in controlling the urinary bladder and urethral function in rats].

Abstract

BACKGROUND The detrusor contraction involves an atropine resistant, nonadrenergic noncholinergic (NANC), component. Since adenosine triphosphate (ATP) has been proposed as a NANC transmitter, the role of ATP-receptors in the lower urinary tract was examined. MATERIALS AND METHODS The isovolumetric bladder contractions and the urethral pressure were… (More)
