Potentiation of purinergic neurotransmission in guinea pig urinary bladder by histamine.

Abstract

Patients suffering from the inflammatory condition of interstitial cystitis frequently exhibit an increased number of mast cells in the bladder. To determine whether mast cell mediators have the potential to influence the neurogenic contraction of the bladder smooth muscle and thereby possibly contribute to the symptoms of interstitial cystitis, we examined… (More)
