OBJECTIVE To characterize the kinin receptor subtype involved in the relaxation of human isolated corpus cavernosum (HCC) induced by bradykinin (BK), Lys-bradykinin (Lys-BK), Met-Lys-bradykinin (Met-Lys-BK) and des-Arg9-bradykinin, and to investigate whether the kinin-induced relaxation of HCC results from the stimulation of nonadrenergic, noncholinergic (NANC) neurons supplying the cavernosal tissue. MATERIALS AND METHODS Excised HCC tissues were immediately placed in Krebs solution and kept… CONTINUE READING
