Role of tachykinins in non-adrenergic non-cholinergic excitation in smooth muscles of the gastrointestinal tract

Abstract

Two peptides from the tachykinin family, substance P (SP) and neurokinin A (NKA), were identified as neurotransmitters (co-transmitters) of non-adrenergic non-cholinergic (NANCh) excitation in the gastrointestinal tract. The contraction of smooth muscles produced by tachykinins released from the excitatory enteric motoneurons is mediated by the NK1 and/or… (More)
