Involvement of L-arginine-nitric oxide pathways in neural relaxation of the sphincter of Oddi.

Abstract

To evaluate if L-arginine-nitric oxide-pathways are involved in the neural relaxation of the sphincter of Oddi, we studied the effect of nitric oxide synthase inhibition on electrical field stimulation-induced relaxation of the sphincter of Oddi in the guinea pig in vitro. After incubation with atropine (1 microM), phentolamine (1 microM) and propranolol (1… (More)
