Ciliostimulation induced by various transmitters has been suggested to be mediated by the release of nitric oxide (NO). Freshly obtained adenoid tissue explants were pre-treated with the nitric oxide synthase (NOS) inhibitor N(G)-nitro L-arginine (L-NNA), to determine whether the ciliostimulators terbutaline, methacholine, substance P, and endothelin-1 require the release of NO to increase ciliary beat frequency (CBF) in vitro. The L-NNA pre-treatment affected the change in CBF induced by each… CONTINUE READING
