Gastric fundus strips (GFS) of rats, guinea-pigs, rabbits, cats and humans, but not of dogs, show spontaneous phasic contractions in vitro. Rabbit, cat, dog and human GFS exhibit dose-dependent responses to acetylcholine (ACh), histamine (His), serotonin (5-HT) and KCl. Guinea-pig drug-induced responses are not dose-dependent. Rat GFS does not respond to… (More)
