Phagocytotic Activation of Muscularis Muscle Contraction in Rat Ileum Resident MacrophagesInhibits Smooth

Abstract

Intestinal muscularis resiclent macrophages distributed in myenteric region may play an important role in the immunological host defense against infection, In this study, we investigated the phagocytic stimulation of resident macrophages on cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) expression and smoeth muscle contraction in the small intestine ef rat. After the iajection… (More)
