Respiratory epithelium modulates the responses of canine bronchi to cooling.


The present study was designed to investigate the effect of cooling on the modulatory role of the respiratory epithelium on the underlying smooth muscle. Canine bronchial rings and segments (with or without epithelium) were suspended in organ chambers and perfused with modified Krebs-Ringer bicarbonate solution, respectively. Isometric force was recorded… (More)
