The enteric purinergic P2Y1 receptor.


Significant recent discoveries have shown that the P2Y(1) purinergic receptor subtype is expressed in the enteric nervous system and at intestinal neuromuscular junctions. Secretomotor neurons, which release vasoactive intestinal peptide at their junctions with intestinal secretory glands, express the P2Y(1) receptor. Synaptically released ATP acts at these… (More)
