1. The possibility of an antagonist effect of 4,4'-diisothiocyanatostilbene-2,2'-disulphonate (DIDS) at P2X-purinoceptors was studied in rat vas deferens. 2. DIDS reduced contractions elicited by alpha,beta-methylene ATP 3 microM, IC50 1.6 microM, but did not change contractions elicited by K+ 35 mM. DIDS 3.2 microM slightly shifted the concentration-response curve of alpha,beta-methylene ATP to the right and reduced the maximum. DIDS 10 microM markedly decreased and DIDS 32 microM abolished… CONTINUE READING
