We investigated the neuronal locus, the role of PKC activation, and utilization of extracellular Ca(2+) and intracellular Ca(2+) release in smooth muscle cells for the generation of giant migrating contractions (GMCs) and rhythmic phasic contractions (RPCs) in intact normal and inflamed canine ileum. Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP), administered close intra-arterially, stimulated GMCs at higher doses and RPCs at smaller doses. These effects were blocked by prior close intra-arterial… CONTINUE READING
