Inhibition by anti-inflammatory agents of contraction induced by epidermal growth factor-urogastrone in isolated longitudinal smooth muscle strips from guinea-pig stomach.

Abstract

1. Epidermal growth factor-urogastrone (EGF-URO) caused a concentration-dependent contractile response of longitudinal muscle strips from the gastric body of the guinea-pig stomach. The contractile response to EGF-URO was monophasic, with tension returning rapidly to baseline. Desensitization was evident in that further addition of EGF-URO to the organ bath… (More)
