Impaired acetylcholine release in the inflamed rat intestine is T cell independent.


We investigated mechanisms underlying the suppression of [3H]acetylcholine ([3H]ACh) release from myenteric plexus-longitudinal muscle preparations of rats infected 6 days previously with Trichinella spiralis. There was a 73% suppression of KCl-evoked release of [3H]ACh in the jejunum, and a 76% suppression was observed in the worm-free ileum, indicating… (More)
