Neurokinin receptors and mucosal ion transport in porcine jejunum.

Neurokinin (NK) peptides such as substance P (SP) may modulate epithelial ion transport in the small intestine. The present study was undertaken to examine the pharmacological mechanisms by which SP and its endogenous homologs NKA and NKB affect active electrolyte transport in the mucosa of porcine jejunum. Neurokinins and NK agonist analogs increased short… (More)
