Spontaneous relaxations occurring within motor activity in the rat gastroduodenum in vivo can be distinguished by their dependence on either nitric oxide (NO) or ATP. We examined the interaction of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) within pathways controlling this activity in the antrum (S) and duodenum (D) of anesthetized Sprague-Dawley rats, using miniaturized extraluminal foil strain gauges oriented perpendicular to (S1, D1) or in the axis of (S2) the… CONTINUE READING
