Longitudinal smooth muscle of the mammalian intestine. A model for Ca2+ signaling by cADPR.

Abstract

Ca2+ mobilization in muscle cells from the circular muscle layer of the mammalian intestine is mediated by IP3-dependent Ca2+ release. Ca2+ mobilization in muscle from the adjacent longitudinal muscle layer involves a distinct, phosphoinositide-independent pathway. Receptors for contractile agonists in longitudinal muscle cells are coupled via a pertussis… (More)
