Substance P gene expression in acute experimental colitis.

Abstract

We have previously shown (Gastroenterology, 101 (1991) 1211-1219), that substance P (SP) decreases early in the colon muscle layer after induction of colitis in rabbits. Since the SP content in the colonic muscle layer was unchanged by sensory denervation with capsaicin, we assume that SP is located predominantly in intrinsic neurons of the colon, and that… (More)
