Our aim was to determine whether adrenergic as well as cholinergic nerves mediate secretion of fluids from tracheal submucosal glands and, if so, via which receptors. To do this, we studied the secretory responses of tracheal segments to electrical and pharmacologic stimulation in vitro in the presence and absence of a specific nerve blocker and autonomic antagonists. Stimulation caused small elevations, or "hillocks," the size of which we estimated by measuring their diameters. We found that… CONTINUE READING
