Methacholine sensitivity and cAMP protein kinase in tracheal smooth muscle.

Abstract

We studied regional variation in canine trachealis smooth muscle sensitivity and responsiveness to methacholine as well as basal and methacholine-stimulated adenosine 3',5'-cyclic monophosphate (cAMP) and cAMP-dependent protein kinase activity. The trachea between the cricoid cartilage and the carina was divided into three segments of equal length… (More)
