OBJECTIVES Extracellular ATP is involved in cell-cell signalling in a variety of tissues but its effects in tissue level signalling in the myometrium have been poorly studied to date. We hypothesised that extracellular ATP was involved in the control of myometrial contractile frequency and/or force. STUDY DESIGN In vitro study of the effect of altering the concentration of extracellular ATP on the spontaneous contractility of human myometrial strips obtained from term elective caesarean… CONTINUE READING
