Effects of substance P, calcitonin gene-related peptide and capsaicin on tension and membrane potential of pig coronary artery in vitro.

Abstract

The effects of substance P (SP), calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) and capsaicin were studied on isometric tension and membrane potential of pig coronary arterial strips in vitro. CGRP induced an endothelium-independent relaxation without change in the smooth muscle membrane potential whereas SP relaxed and hyperpolarized the strip via the endothelium… (More)
