Age-related changes of P2X(1) receptor mRNA in the bladder detrusor from men with and without bladder outlet obstruction.


The urinary bladder purinergic system is reported to change with age and with bladder dysfunction. Here, we examined the expression of purinergic P2X(1) receptors in detrusor and mucosa (urothelium+lamina propria) from male control bladder and investigated age-related P2X(1) receptor mRNA expression in control and obstructed detrusor. Biopsy specimens were… (More)
