Pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide enhances the hyperpolarization-activated nonselective cationic conductance, Ih, in dissociated guinea pig intracardiac neurons.

Abstract

Pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP) peptides, which are co-localized with acetylcholine in preganglionic parasympathetic fibers innervating guinea pig intracardiac ganglia, depolarize and increase excitability of intracardiac neurons. Perforated patch whole cell recordings were used to test whether PACAP27-enhanced activation of Ih… (More)
