The presence of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) in enteric and dorsal root ganglion neurons suggests that it might be involved as a transmitter in the sensory pathway that mediates the peristaltic reflex. This notion was examined in a three-compartment flat-sheet colonic preparation in which stimuli (muscle stretch or mucosal stimulation) were applied to the central compartment, while ascending contraction and descending relaxation were measured in the peripheral compartments. Both… CONTINUE READING
