  • The effects of exogenously applied prostaglandins on the contractile responses of the gallbladder and sphincter of Oddi isolated from guinea pigs were examined in normal and indomethacin-treated preparations. Indomethacin reduced the tone and the contractile responses to transmural stimulation and to exogenously applied ACh of the gallbladder, while the tone and contractile responses of the sphincter of Oddi were little affected by indomethacin. Prostaglandins E1, E2 and F2 alpha potentiated… CONTINUE READING
