1. We have used subtype selective P2X receptor antibodies to determine the expression of P2X(1 - 7) receptor subunits in the mouse urinary bladder. In addition we have compared P2X receptor mediated responses in normal and P2X(1) receptor deficient mice to determine the contribution of the P2X(1) receptor to the mouse bladder smooth muscle P2X receptor phenotype. 2. P2X(1) receptor immunoreactivity was restricted to smooth muscle of the bladder and arteries and was predominantly associated with… CONTINUE READING
