The inhibitory innervation of canine airways was examined in isolated trachealis strips and helical strips of airways having outside diameters of 5 and 1.5 mm. Exogenous norepinephrine (10-8 M to 10-3 M) did not alter resting tone but relaxed airways contracted by 10-5 M histamine. Relaxations produced by norepinephrine were antagonized by 10-6 M… (More)
