The effect of thiorphan and epithelium removal on contractions and tachykinin release produced by activation of capsaicin-sensitive afferents in the guinea-pig isolated bronchus


(1) We have studied the effect of epithelium removal (rubbing) and the endopeptidase 24.11 inhibitor, thiorphan, on the contractile response of the guinea-pig isolated bronchi (atropine and indomethacin in the bath) produced by electrical field stimulation, capsaicin or exogenously administered tachykinins (substance P and neurokinin A). (2) The response to… (More)
