The effect of apamin, a polypeptide from bee venom, on the release of vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) during active neurogenic vasodilatation in the intestines was studied in vivo in anesthetized cats. Three non-adrenergic, non-cholinergic mechanisms were investigated, i.e. the vasodilatation seen upon transmural electrical field stimulation, pelvic… CONTINUE READING
