  1. P"2 purinoceptor antagonists inhibit the non-adrenergic, non-cholinergic relaxation of the human colon in vitro

    Neuroscience 147(1):7 (2007) PMID 17509767

    We used P(2) purinoceptor antagonists to assess whether such receptors are involved in the NANC relaxation of the circular muscle of the human sigmoid colon. It was also investigated whether the guanylate cyclase enzyme mediates the NANC response. Human colonic circular strips were tested in organ b...
  2. Distribution of nitrergic neurons in the dorsal root ganglia of the bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus).

    Anatomical Record. Part A: Advances in Integrat... 294(6):1066 (2011) PMID 21538934

    Dorsal root ganglia (DRGs) contain the cell bodies of primary afferent neurons that transmit sensory information from the periphery into the spinal cord. Distinct populations of DRG neurons have been characterized by a variety of different immunohistochemical markers. A subpopulation...
  3. Adrenergic, nitrergic and peptidergic innervation of the urethral muscle in the boar.

    Folia Histochemica et Cytobiologica 42(2):89 (2004) PMID 15253131

    In this study, the innervation of the urethral muscle in adult male pigs was investigated using combined NADPH-diaphorase (NADPH-d) histochemistry and immunocytochemistry. Nerve fibres supplying the urethral muscle were found to show NADPH-d activity and they also expressed immunoreactivity to catec...
  4. Nitrergic modulation of gastrointestinal function during early endotoxemia.

    Current Pharmaceutical Design 12(34):4525 (2006) PMID 17168758

    We provide experimental evidence supporting the hypothesis that activation of a physiologic mechanism, mediated by the autonomic and the central nervous systems as well as constitutive NOS isoforms, is involved in acute changes of gastrointestinal function during early endotoxemia....
  5. Purinergic and nitrergic neuromuscular transmission mediates spontaneous neuronal activity in the rat colon.

    American Journal of Physiology - Gastrointestin... 299(1):G158 (2010) PMID 20395536

    We concluded that, in the rat colon, inhibitory neurons regulate smooth muscle RMP and cause sIJP. In vitro, the release of inhibitory neurotransmitters is independent of nicotinic, P2X, and 5-hydroxytryptamine type 3 receptors. Neuronal NO causes a sustained smooth muscle hyperpolarization that is...
  6. Pacemaker activity and inhibitory neurotransmission in the colon of Ws/Ws mutant rats.

    American Journal of Physiology - Gastrointestin... 292(6):G1499 (2007) PMID 17322067

    The aim of this study was to characterize the pacemaker activity and inhibitory neurotransmission in the colon of Ws/Ws mutant rats, which harbor a mutation in the c-kit gene that affects development of interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC). In Ws/Ws rats, the density of KIT-positive cells was markedly...
