Carbachol potentiates cholera toxin-induced secretion in a colonic epithelial cell line (HT29-19A) and rat ileal mucosa in vitro.

Abstract

Recent studies show that enteric nerves are involved in the action of cholera toxin, both in vivo and in vitro. The aim of this study was to investigate in vitro the influence of carbachol, a cholinergic agonist, on the action of cholera toxin. Cultured HT29-19A cell lines and rat ileal mucosa were used in an Ussing chamber for the measurement of short… (More)
