1. Neuropeptide Y caused a dose-dependent contraction and depolarization of the smooth muscle of the rat tail artery. 2. 30 nM-neuropeptide Y increased the contraction caused by either nerve-released noradrenaline or smooth muscle action potentials. 3. 30 nM-neuropeptide Y did not change the amplitude or rate of rise of the smooth muscle action potential… CONTINUE READING
