1. We review literature demonstrating (a) the presence and (b) the actions of substances that mediate or modify neuroeffector transmission to the smooth muscle of the prostrate stroma of a number of species including man. 2. In all species studied prostatic stroma, but not secretory acini, receives rich noradrenergic innervation. Stimulation of these nerves causes contractions of prostate smooth muscle that are inhibited by guanethidine and by alpha1-adrenoceptor antagonists that probably act… Expand
