We examined the effect of bradykinin (Bk) on cytosolic calcium ([Ca++]i) in cultured rat ileal myenteric neurons. The receptor subtype(s) and calcium pool(s), e.g., extracellular and/or intracellular calcium that mediate Bk's effect on [Ca++]i in myenteric neurons, have not been reported. Superfusion with Bk (10 nM) increased [Ca++]i by 96 +/- 10 nM over basal levels in approximately 80% of the neurons tested that were not affected by a Bk-1 receptor antagonist but were inhibited 72% by a Bk-2… CONTINUE READING
