Lack of evidence in vivo for nitrergic inhibition by Escherichia coli (STa) enterotoxin of fluid absorption from rat proximal jejunum


Fluid absorption from the proximal jejunum of the anaesthetised rat was measured in vivo by fluid recovery. As expected, heat stable (STa) enterotoxin from E. coli reduced fluid absorption. Neither intraperitoneal L-NAME, thought to inhibit a putative neurally mediated action of STa, nor similar doses of D-NAME, ameliorated the inhibitory effect on jejunal… (More)
