Endogenous nucleotides with extracellular functions may be involved in the complex neural control of human urinary bladder (HUB). Using HPLC techniques with fluorescence detection, we observed that in addition to ATP and its metabolites ADP, AMP and adenosine, electrical field stimulation (EFS; 4-16 Hz, 0.1 ms, 15 V, 60 s) of HUB detrusor smooth muscle coreleases novel nucleotide factors, which produce etheno-1N(6)-ADP-ribose (eADPR) on etheno-derivatization at high temperature. A detailed HPLC…

Neuronal and extraneuronal release of ATP and NAD+ in smooth muscle
TLDR
The purine hypothesis of neural regulation in smooth muscle is in need of reevaluation with emphasis on the roles of extracellular ATP and NAD+ and, further, will discuss more recent information about the likely involvement of multiple purines in Smooth muscle neurotransmission.
Storage and secretion of β‐NAD, ATP and dopamine in NGF‐differentiated rat pheochromocytoma PC12 cells
TLDR
Subcellular fractionation by continuous glycerol and sucrose gradients along with immunoblot analysis of the vesicular marker proteins synaptophysin and secretogranin II revealed that β‐NAD, ATP and DA are stored in both small synaptic‐like vesicles and large dense‐core‐likeVesicles, however, the three substances appear to have different preferential sites of release upon membrane depolarization.
Purinergic-Dependent Ca 2+ Pathways in Rat Pulmonary Artery Smooth Muscle Cells
TLDR
ADPR elicited concentration-dependent increase in [Ca 2+ ] i with a fast transient and a sustained phase in PASMCs, and the pharmacological profile of ATP-induced Ca 2+ response was distinctive from that of ADPR.
Effects of exogenous nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) in the rat heart are mediated by P2 purine receptors
TLDR
Extracellular NAD+ is supposed to be a novel regulator of cardiac electrical activity and P2 receptors represent the main target of NAD+ at least in the rat heart.
β-nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide is an enteric inhibitory neurotransmitter in human and nonhuman primate colons.
TLDR
β-NAD meets the criteria for a neurotransmitter better than ATP in human and monkey colons and therefore may contribute to neural regulation of colonic motility.
Release, neuronal effects and removal of extracellular β‐nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (β‐NAD+) in the rat brain
TLDR
Rat brain synaptosomes can actively release, degrade and uptake β‐NAD+, and β‐ NAD+ can stimulate postsynaptic neurons, all criteria needed for a substance to be considered a candidate neurotransmitter in the brain.
Extracellular ATP and β-NAD alter electrical properties and cholinergic effects in the rat heart in age-specific manner
TLDR
The ability of ATP and β-NAD to alter cholinergic effects in the heart is estimated to be at the postsynaptic and presynaptic levels via affecting the cardiac myocytes APs and ACh release.
Cyclic ADP‐ribose requires CD38 to regulate the release of ATP in visceral smooth muscle
TLDR
Extracellular cADPR enhances the spontaneous release of ATP in the bladder by influx via CD38 and subsequent activation of intracellular cadPR receptors, probably causing an increase in intrace cellular Ca2+ in neuronal cells.

Release of beta-nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide upon stimulation of postganglionic nerve terminals in blood vessels and urinary bladder.
TLDR
It is observed that, in addition to ATP and norepinephrine (NE), electrical field stimulation of isolated vascular and non-vascular preparations co-releases a previously unidentified compound with apparent nucleotide or nucleoside structure, implicating novel nucleotide mechanisms of autonomic nervous system control of smooth muscle.
Release of β-Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide upon Stimulation of Postganglionic Nerve Terminals in Blood Vessels and Urinary Bladder*
TLDR
It is observed that, in addition to ATP and norepinephrine, electrical field stimulation of isolated vascular and non-vascular preparations co-releases a previously unidentified compound with apparent nucleotide or nucleoside structure, which is implicating novel nucleotide mechanisms of autonomic nervous system control of smooth muscle.
Evidence for the differential release of the cotransmitters ATP and noradrenaline from sympathetic nerves of the guinea‐pig vas deferens.
TLDR
The results indicate that evoked overflow of the cotransmitters accurately reflects release from nerves, and suggests that the two cottransmitters are released from two separate populations of exocytotic vesicles.

Inhibitory and facilitatory presynaptic effects of endothelin on sympathetic cotransmission in the rat isolated tail artery
TLDR
The endothelin peptides exerted both facilitatory and inhibitory effects on the neurogenically‐induced release of the sympathetic cotransmitters ATP and NA in the rat tail artery, indicating that the endothelins do not differentially modulate the release of NA and ATP in this tissue.
CHARACTERISTICS OF ADENOSINE TRIPHOSPHATASE RELEASE FROM PORCINE AND HUMAN NORMAL BLADDER
TLDR
The level of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) release from porcine and normal human bladders was established and significantly increased ATP release over baseline was induced by mechanical and electrical stimulation.

TLDR
These two novel nucleotides have now been shown to be involved in a wide range of cellular functions including: cell cycle regulation in Euglena, a protist; gene expression in plants; and in animal systems, from fertilization to neurotransmitter release and long-term depression in brain.
Cyclic GMP-dependent and -independent Effects on the Synthesis of the Calcium Messengers Cyclic ADP-ribose and Nicotinic Acid Adenine Dinucleotide Phosphate*
TLDR
The complex metabolic pathways characterized in this study indicate that there may be a multitude of regulatory mechanisms for controlling the endogenous concentrations of cADPR and NAADP.
