Stimulatory effects of ghrelin on spontaneous contractions in the rat myometrium

Abstract

Ghrelin, a recently isolated hormone, has been reported to have modulatory effects on smooth muscle contractility. In this study, we investigated the effects of ghrelin on spontaneous contractions in the rat uterus in vitro. Myometrium strips were removed from Wistar rats following decapitation and placed in a jacketed tissue bath. After initiation of… (More)
