Acute desensitization of muscarinic receptors in the isolated guinea-pig ileal longitudinal muscle.

1. The effects of acute desensitization of muscarinic receptors mediating contractile responses of the guinea-pig ileal longitudinal muscle were studied in vitro, using similar conditions for both functional and radioligand binding studies. 2. The pA2 values for a number of muscarinic antagonists (pirenzepine, methoctramine, (+/-)para-fluoro-hexahydro… (More)
